The Sprawl is a research and development environment with a focus on information security and hacking culture. The site is split into several categories each containing unique presentation of the above topics.
is the main source for project announcements and site news. It is intentionally kept low volume so as not to distract from the rest of the site.
is a collection of articles covering a wide range of topics related to security. This is the product of my blood, sweat and tears navigating the rough waters of security research; I hope you will enjoy the fruits of my labor.
is a repository of security tools and scripts that rely heavily on topics covered in the research section. Each tool has detailed usage description; however, you might want to reference respective research article for in-depth understanding of its operation.
is a collection of media artifacts covering hacking culture. Currently it includes a few dozen handpicked documentaries and television shows on the subject. In case you are interested the name Simstim comes from William Gibson's The Sprawl trilogy. Simstim is described as a device capable of replaying or live viewing of another person's sensory experience. In a way this project attempts to stimulate your mind with a carefully selected collection of audio and video recordings.
is a historical project to explore events related to the hacking culture and information security such as group formations, important releases, compromises, arrests, etc. Studying the history of the previously mentioned topics is essential when trying to understand where we stand today and possibly glimpse into the future.
The site was designed and developed by Peter Kacherginsky (iphelix).
