Build the Shield – Microsoft (CTF – earlier called HackCon)
Build the Shield/Capture The Flag are DEFCON’s CTF modeled A&D CTF where participants learn about security issues and vulnerabilities by attacking each other’s servers. Leading the team, I designed and developed the environment which was hosted in an Azure VNet and had 50 VMs running concurrently . The model was also used as HackCon by Microsoft for hiring students from colleges. Internally, CTF received participation from various products teams and received outstanding feedbacks.
Working with national Health 2.0 Winners as an unregistered member of their team in September 2012, I worked on Kavach which was a submission for the Health 2.0 World Cup held in San Francisco. Developed as health monitoring platform, Kavach is designed as a shirt with various embedded sensors to monitor various vital body parameters. In cases of emergencies like heart stroke or accident, it sends an SOS email to the concerned doctor and relatives. Kavach, representing India, came 2nd in Health 2.0 World Cup. I was later invited to showcase Kavach in the Inclusive Innovations Convention 2013.
Cloud development + IIT Internship
In college, I worked on the development of an AWS-compatible private cloud using Eucalyptus with the help of my seniors and colleagues. We created a 20-node cluster and later expanded it to 40 nodes which produced 74GFlops of processing power measured with High Performance Linpack benchmark. Taking the learning from my in-college cloud development, I did my summer internship at IIT-Patna where I developed another Eucalyptus cloud for MANET based data processing and then did a Hadoop installation on top of it.
I have also worked on Windows Azure, Dynamics CRM Voice, Dynamics AX and some other internal Microsoft applications. Currently I’m working with API Apps to write our new Tax Reporting architecture on microservices model.
