Hello World

whoami

My name is Nolen Johnson, I’m a Hardware/IoT Security Consultant at the cyber-security firm DirectDefense, Inc.. I work in the Connected System’s division, which focuses on hardware security, SCADA/OT/IoT/IIoT enviorment security, and firmware security.

I’m originally from Burnsville, MN, but currently reside in Orlando, FL.

I really enjoy hardware hacking/exploration on any IoT/Android device I can get my hands on. Sometimes cool things come out of my research, other times there’s nothing much to see.

I will be posting 5 main types of content here:

  • Helpful Tech/Android how-to posts
  • Exploit writeups/releases
  • Research/Vulnerability findings (even if they’re not of use to me, they may be to someone else)
  • Security whitepapers/writeup (either on my work or others)
  • The occasional meme post
