Hello, world!

Hello, world! After 20+ years spent working at the same company, I decided it was time to move on and try something different. This led to the creation of the HN Security project, that saw the light in early 2021.

We are a new startup part of the Humanativa Group specializing in offensive security. We are cybersecurity veterans and we belong to a global community of security researchers. We regularly speak at national and international events. We routinely discover, exploit, and report 0day vulnerabilities in commercial and open-source software. We develop and maintain globally adopted tools and methodologies. We have written and published many technical articles and even some books.

We are bringing together a tightly knit team encompassing the best talents in Italy. By emphasizing manual testing over automation and quality over quantity, we aim to become a center of excellence among offensive security service providers in Europe.

Come back to visit this blog to find new, original security research that we plan to publish regularly. In the meantime, here are some links you might find interesting:


If you have a need for tailored offensive security services with superior quality, if you think you have what it takes to come work with us, or just to connect and have a chat, drop me a message on Twitter or LinkedIn.
