Top Indian Hackers | Real Hackers of India

There has been a lot of commotion in the Indian Hacking scene lately, and I expressed some pretty strong views regarding that. Long Live Indian HackersWhen it comes to hacking, every other guy tends to tape the "hacker" word with his name/codename without even realizing its significance. Then there is Facebook ...Have a look at it -

X hacker , Y hacker, big hacker, small hacker , cat hacker, mouse hacker, black hacker, white hacker. Seriously man..What were they thinking ?
Seriously guys..what were they thinking ?! I am still counting the number of “Indian Cyber Army” India has and the number of groups tend to increase recycling all the content, same VIP forums, same deface techniques, zero original research.  
Then there is Ankit Fadiya...dont let me even get started...

In the end tired of all the bullshit around, I decided to cover an article on the REAL INDIAN HACKERS (or Hackers of Indian Origin), folks who are actually dedicated to security and are hackers in real sense. Lets start, shall we ?

Pranav Mistry

Pranav Mistry - The famed 6th sense developer
The famed 6th sense developer,Pranav Mistry is a research assistant and a PhD candidate at MIT Media Lab. SixthSense has recently attracted global attention. Among some of his previous work, Pranav has invented Mouseless - an invisible computer mouse; intelligent sticky notes that can be searched, located and can send reminders and messages; a pen that can draw in 3D; and a public map that can act as Google of physical world. Pranav has commercialized his invention, the sixth sense and SixthSense is now being actively used at NASA. It is rumored that Facebook tried to acquire the technology from Pranav for a reportedly $2 billion and 5% ownership of Facebook, but Pranav decided to open source it instead.

Thats what any real hacker do. Hats Off to him.

Koushik Dutta or “Koush”

Koushik Dutta - UnrEVOked Forever :)
“Set Your Phone Free..”
Rings a bell ? Koushik Dutta or “Koush” is responsible for Clockworkmod recovery and Rom Manager for Android rooting and the core member of famed UnrEVOked team. He has been a .net developer from heart and had his internship initially at Microsoft and is a former MVP. He decided to leave Microsoft and hack Android cellphones like there was no tomorrow. Sony approached him after geohot humped them like anything but he politely declined .

Bravo for his efforts, we are able to root painlessly using UnREVOked.
Now only if UnrEVOked can release UnrEVOked 3.33 soon :)

Vivek Ramchandran

He was among the Top 10 Indian finalists in the Microsoft shootout competition among the list of 65000 participants.
Vivek Ramachandran has been working in the computer and network security domain, in some form or the other, for the past 7 years and has worked with Industry giants like Reliance, Cisco, Microsoft. He was among the Top 10 Indian finalists in the Microsoft shootout competition among the list of 65000 participants. Then he decided to join Airtight Networks and there discovered Caffe Latte attack attack along with his colleague MD Sohail Ahmad from Airtight Networks ,the wifi hacking technique that doesn't required you to be in active vicinity of the wifi zone. 

That said, he is one of the researcher to lookout.

Almost everybody at NULL Security Community & Garage4hackers
I said it before and I will say it again, the Only active Indian hacking community is NULL community, and the best Indian Hacking Forum where real hackers meet is hands on.

Shoutz to garage crew :)

Folks at Indian Honeynet Chapter
Now we are talking..Indian Honeynet chapter is the collaborative effort of the best geeks and hackers .The focus of honeypot is on Worms and Botnets and developing an Open Source tool to study and counter brute force attacks/ phishing through wifi. Its also being setup as potential web-app honeypot,and aims on improving detection and forensic techniques.  Heading the ship are L Shriram, K K Mookhey, Amit Chugh, Asim Jakhar and a lot of professionals who are dedicated in the field of computer security.

Hari Prasad
The famed security researcher Hari Prasad is the winner of EFF Pioneer award
The famed security researcher Hari Prasad is the winner of EFF Pioneer award, as he along with Alex Halderman, and Rop Gonggrijp were able to study an electronic voting machine (EVM) and found significant vulnerabilities that would not be difficult to execute. For his troubles, Prasad was arrested and jailed in August, held without bail in Mumbai for a week. Though he is now out on bail and in the United States, he still faces criminal prosecution for alleged theft of the EVM and other charges.

The genius of the Indian system is that instead of making machines tamper proof and more efficient, they arrested him.
According to the Indian news agency PTI, the magistrate who released Prasad on bail noted that "no offence was disclosed with Hari Prasad's arrest and even if it was assumed that [the electronic voting machine] was stolen it appears that there was no dishonest intention on his part...he was trying to show how [electronic voting] machines can be tampered with."

Jayant Krishnamurthy

Jayant Krishnamurthy

Jayant Krishnamurthy is a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science, CMU and his interests include are machine learning, machine reading, common sense reasoning, information extraction, knowledge representation, and their applications in AI and NLP (shamelessly taken from his website). He is one of the researchers who are behind designing MD6 algorithm (yeah you heard it right, the evolution of MD5). He is a top level computer theorist and researcher and is a real life hacker. He teaches computer and network security and you must ahve a look at the problems and solutions at the given link.

For the lighter side,you can have a look at the funny flash movie based on his real life experiences at high school.

I guess, you now have an actual idea of the Indian hackers now :) These guys are real and are deemed worthy of having the hacker emblem with them.

Long Live Indian Hackers

One of the best articles that I have ever read mate. This is truly a tribute to the one who are contributing to the scene and in a very positive way unlike being stupid enough to get some tools and then start defacement!

What I really would love to see people taking inspiration from the above hackers.
