Who are you, and what do you do?
I am Satish Bommisetty (@satishb3). I work as a security analyst for Pramati technologies, a product development company in India. As part of my job, I assess the security of web & mobile applications and train developers. I used to spent a lot of time on the mobile space, especially on iOS hacking & forensics. Now I am participating in bug bounty programs in my free time. I authored a book named Practical Mobile Forensics . I’m also a blogger and a family man.
You can connect to me on twitter and LinkedIn.
What hardware do you use?
For personal work, I use a MacBook Pro 13 inch mid 2012 model with i7 processor, 8GB RAM and 1GB graphic card. For office work I have an HP Windows 8 machine.
I have a smart audio system to listen music while working 🙂
What does your testing network or lab look like?
All my mobiles are connected to my Mac and I shell into those devices when required.
What tools and software do you use for your trade?
As my primary area of focus is application security, I use Burp Suite Pro with few plugins. I enable burp plugins only when needed to save memory. For all my testing, I use Firefox with Multifox, Proxy Selector and User Agent switcher plugins. I write Python programs when I want to automate something during the work. I use evernote.com to keep my notes.
For iOS testing, I use most of the tools listed here:
What is your dream setup?
I am good with my setup now. In near future, I will upgrade my Mac and get a powerful router.
Wish you all the best and happy hacking.
