I am a research-oriented undergraduate cybersecurity student. Wannabe PhD.
Hi, I am Saket Upadhyay.
B.Tech. Computer Science and Engineering, VIT. (2022)
I am a passionate senior year cybersecurity and computer science undergrad with experience in academic and industrial cybersecurity research. I am seeking opportunities for a doctoral degree after my graduation, and I aim to continue my career in academia after that.
People who inspired me by their work, guidance, interaction, or just by mere existence.
My Parents and family.
For their evergreen love and support.
Dr. Shishir Kumar Shandilya
Guided me since day one of my college.
Dr. Ajit Kumar
Introduced me to academic research
Mr. Ravindra Charjan
My highschool teacher. Gave me access to computer labs and motivated me to pursue computer science.
Dr. Héloïse Stevance
Simon Clark, PhD
His work on youtube motivated me for higher studies. I also learned from his presentation style.

Here are some of my projects. (Includes personal projects, Hack-a-thon builds and academic projects.)
Created during HackDSC'21 (Google DSC's national level Hack-a-thon) under Open Innovation in Data Privacy and Security domain. Secured second position.
Word Count dependent Esoteric Programming Language based on BrainF*ck Logic.
(X Six Four Operating System) is a simple 64bit Linux Kernel from scratch. I am making this project as a teaching tool. The aim is to create well-structured documentation and proper releases on Git so that anyone can trace my steps and learn the same concepts.
Project to understand more about Linux Kernel Modules development.
Collection of cybersecurity simulations in NS3 and C++ for academia. Some of the simulations are build from scratch and some are build upon existing solutions. With common aim to aid in understanding Cybersecurity Concepts and be able to play with them.
National Hack-a-thon project (Won 1st Rank in Information Security Domain)
