We have provided our services for a range of clients including leading internet service providers and utility companies.


Every engagement is tailored to meet your unique needs, and may range from advisory to deep technical assessment, research, and recommendations. Every project begins with thorough understanding of your products, services, and security objectives.

We encourage clients to engage our services early in product development so that we can assist in designing a secure system from the start; however, we understand that this is not always possible, and are available for consultation at any stage of development or product lifecycle.

Our team adheres to ethical codes of conduct to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your systems. Our experts maintain several industry certifications including Certified Intrusion Analysts and Certified Incident Handlers. We take client confidentiality very seriously and make a clear distinction between consulting services and open source community contributions.

River Loop Security succeeds because we take time to recognize your needs and collaborate on solutions built around a thorough understanding of security and engineering principles.

Please get in touch so that we can understand your questions or needs. We excel at solving problems, from tactical to strategic. Whether you need a quick rapid turnaround consultation, system evaluation, or comprehensive strategy, please contact us so we can discuss your needs.

Hardware assessment and penetration testing

We perform black or white-box analysis of hardware systems, ranging from consumer devices to embedded backend technologies. Our electrical engineers work closely with our security experts to examine each part of the devices down to the circuit boards, to assess access vectors to the firmware. We often build custom devices to extract code, and keys, and more.

Custom security tools, including code and/or hardware development

We have experience developing custom software solutions on platform and embedded devices. We have in-house PCB design and assembly capabilities for custom hardware to interface with unique target devices.

Wireless reverse engineering

We do in-depth testing including RF protocol reverse engineering, wireless penetration testing, and reverse engineering of custom and proprietary protocols.

Software and system penetration testing

We apply in-depth knowledge of real-world threats to identify and exploit vulnerabilities that could be used by attackers to breach your security. We work closely with our clients to formulate appropriate test procedures, which could include checking for application vulnerabilities, social engineering, or physical penetration.

Security risk assessment

Our experts review your company's business needs and risk profile to recommend proven techniques, industry best practices, and a blend of technologies to manage information security risks.

Network scanning, including device enumeration and vulnerability analysis

We perform discovery of an organization's true internet or intranet facing exposure, and determine what platform or application vulnerabilities exist.

Disclosure response consulting

If your company or an affiliate experiences a reported product vulnerability, our team can assist to help validate findings, compare your solution with best practices, and offer expert advice to your response team.

Cryptography design and review

Our cryptographers can help recommend appropriate cryptographic protocols for your use cases, and review your cryptographic designs and algorithm implementations to assess their security and recommend improvements.
