About Me

My name is Grant Douglas, I’m an Associate Principal Consultant @Synopsys and have been working here for over 5 years. I’ve spent a number of years looking at mobile security, specifically focusing on pentesting, code review, binary (& runtime) hardening, RASP evaluation, and more. I’ve worked on many static and dynamic testing/analysis tools - some public, some not. You can find some ramblings (in code form) on Github, and a few of them are in publications such as the Mobile App Hackers Handbook and iOS forensics.

Outside of work, i play a bunch of video games such as PUBG, LoL, etc. Feel free to tweet me if you want to chat about security or games. I also collaborated with some friends on an app once, which let you unlock your macOS device with your iPhone (using Touch ID), until Apple added Touch ID sensors to macs.

Prior to joining Synopsys, I studied Ethical Hacking & Countermeasures at Abertay University, Scotland. During my time there, I also worked as a summer intern for four months at NCR Corporation, performing various security testing activities on Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) and related software.
