About John McMaster

I'm primarily known for my work related to http://siliconpr0n.org/ which contains information on how to reverse engineer computer chips as well as high resolution images of many chips. I work on these projects in my spare time and subsidize them with consulting work. While some projects receive individual funding there are still significant costs associated with equipment acquisition and repair. Want to see crazier projects? Funding helps me put more time into them and accelerates purchases.

FOSS projects

Some of my more popular open source projects:
I also run some wikis including siliconpr0n.org and proghq.org.

MTVRE

Local meetup in the SF bay area. Meetup page link.

We meet monthly in the Mountain View area and usually have talks on reverse engineering and/or computer security. The costs of running the meetup have risen steadily, so I created this Patreon to help cover those costs and give us room to grow!

Sample expenses:
  • meetup.com costs $197.88 / year ($16.49 per meetup)
  • Zoom $15.44 / per meetup
  • Over $300 in A/V equipment to support broadcasting to the front
  • Stickers
