About the author


This is Carlos Polop.

First of all, I want to indicate that I don't own this entire book, a lot of information was copy/pasted from other websites and that content belongs to them (this is indicated on the copy/pasted content).

I also wants to say thanks to all the people that share cyber-security related information for free on the Internet. Thanks to them I learnt hacking and thanks to them HackTricks is possible.


If for some weird reason you are interested in knowing about my bio here you have a summary:

  • I'm a Telecommunications Engineer with a Masters in Cybersecurity

  • Relevant certifications: OSCP, OSWE, CRTP (Certified Red Team Professional) and Professional Drone pilot.

  • I speak Spanish and English and little of French (some day I will improve that).

  • I'm a CTF player
