Blackhat 2010 Getting in bed with Robin Sage.

Robin Sage is a fictional American cyber threat analyst. She was created in December 2009 by Thomas Ryan, a security specialist and White hat hacker from New York.

According to Sage’s social networking profiles, she is a 25-year-old “cyber threat analyst” at the Naval Network Warfare Command in Norfolk, Virginia. She graduated from MIT and had allegedly 10 years of work experience, despite her young age. Ryan created several accounts under the name Sage on popular social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc. and used those profiles to contact nearly 300 people, most of them security specialists, military personnel, staff at intelligence agencies and defense contractors.
