For this fifth edition in a series of advice columns
for folks interested in learning more about security as a craft or profession, I interviewed Charlie Miller
, a software bug-finder extraordinaire and principal research consultant with Accuvant LABS
Probably best known for his skills at hacking Apple
‘s products, Miller spent five years at the National Security Agency
as a “global network exploitation analyst.” After leaving the NSA, Miller carved out a niche for himself as an independent security consultant before joining Accuvant in May 2011.
