Last Tuesday when I arrived at BlackHat, I walked straight up to the book store. And there it was! I held it in my hands for the first time. I have to say, it was a really emotional moment. Seeing the product of 1.5 years of work was just amazing. I am really happy with how the book turned out. The color insert in the middle is a real eye-catcher for people flipping through the book and it greatly helps making some of the graphs better interpretable.

I am glad I was able to give copies to some people that have contributed by inspiring me, challenging me, or even giving me very specific use-cases that I collected in the book. Thanks everyone again! I really appreciate all your help.

People keep asking me what the next project is now that the book is out. Well, I am still busy. is one of my projects. I am trying to get more people involved in the discussions and get more people to contribute graphs. Another project I am starting is to build out a training around the book, which I want to teach at security conferences. I have a few leads already for that. Drop me a note if you would be interested in taking such a training. Maybe I will also get some time to work on AfterGlow some more. I have a lot of ideas on that end…

During DefCon, I recorded a PodCast with Martin McKeay where I talk a little bit about the book.


  1. It’s great to see the book is out Raffy. I haven’t checked your blog in awhile so I was surprised to see a photo of you holding the book. Are there pretty pictures in the book?
