Who is Gouki?

Check Your Web Security with Acunetix

Well the original Gouki (also known as Akuma) is a character from the Street Fighter game series. I started using this handle approximately 10 years ago, when I was a big fan of the game.

My name is Tiago, and I’m a 20-something geek living in Portugal (all over the place).

I am interested in Information Security and everything related to GNU/Linux. I consider myself a free culture activist and free software supporter. I’m involved in the FSF, the GNU project, I do a lot of tracing and editing on the Open Street Map project and I do all sorts of contributions to the Ubuntu GNU/Linux distribution.

I also use a fair part of my free time working on the Tor Project, where I’m the core translator off all projects under Tor to Portuguese, run several relay nodes and one bridge node. I also keep a server with hidden services up and running for people on the .onion land.

During the day, I maintain my own small business dealing mostly with disaster recovery, teach LPI (I’m LPIC-3 and UCP-1 certified) and CompTia (A+, Network+, Security+ and Linux+ certified) courses and maintain a few Drupal/Wordpress websites for clients. Basically doing what I can to pay the bills.

My posts on Darknet will, obviously, be related to Information Security with special interest on Wireless, Linux kernel and general news.

My homepage is available at http://xroot.org/. Feel free to contact me if I can help you in any way.

Tiago

    We need someone who sits on his ass all day like yourself to post updated news and other stuffs here. Since some or all of us are working its kinda hard to juggle work and obsessions at the same time.

    So yeah, Welcome to the realm dude !! \(^_^)/ ……
