The Insecure Wire

a network engineers perspective



Welcome to an IT networking and security blog.
My name is Nick Eoannidis and i have been an computer networking and security enthusiast since i was around 15. I have been fascinated with computers and all that they can do from a very early age. My key interests in the networking and security fields are:

Switching / Routing / Wireless
Data center Networking / Virtualization / Software Defined Networking / Network Functions Virtulization

Network Security / Network Monitoring and Management
Penetration Testing / Hacking Techniques

I am a trained and qualified network engineer. After completing my BSc in Internetworking and Security at University I worked hard to acquire a few certifications to endorse my skill sets with product vendors such as Cisco, VMware, Riverbed and EC-Council. I like to do the certification once i design and implement a product set from a vendor. I currently hold the title of Unified Enterprise Architect for a college in my home town of Fremantle, Western Australia.

I’ve created to blog about my experiences in the networking industry, I have used so many how-to’s, fixes and tips from IT based blogs and sites on the internet, so I figured it was time to give back to the community.
