Mubix (Rob Fuller) is a Senior Red Teamer. His professional experience starts from his time on active duty as United States Marine. He has worked with devices and software that run gambit in the security realm. He has a few certifications, but the titles that he holds above the rest is FATHER, HUSBAND and United States Marine.

Egypt (James Lee) is a software developer for Rapid7 where he is a core developer for the Metasploit Framework. Before devoting all his time to Metasploit, he was a Cybersecurity researcher for Idaho National Laboratory where he discovered numerous vulnerabilities in SCADA and Industrial Control Systems. Egypt has presented at DefCon, BSidesLV, Black Hat, Derbycon and other venues. Note that Egypt is not Egypt. The two can be distinguished easily by their relative beards - Egypt has millions, while Egypt only has the one.
