Boyle was born January 1991 in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. He joined the Air Force Jan. 19, 2010. His first assignment was to the 1st Air and Space Communications Operations Squadron at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. Most of his spare time is spent either watching hockey or playing NHL '15 on his PlayStation 4. One of his short term goals is to make staff sergeant in the next promotion cycle, and long term goal is to retire from the Air Force after 20 years.
In one week, Boyle issued 15 secret internet protocol router tokens allowing military and civilian personnel to access to the Secret Internet Protocol Network. He revoked 32 SIPRNet token certificates which prevented all 32 tokens from becoming vulnerabilities. He also initiated and issued five separate encryption certificates for 566th Intelligence Squadron leadership, allowing encrypted email to be sent to and from the requested organizational mailboxes. He also was part of a five-person team tasked to mitigate critical vulnerabilities on high-risk SIPRNet machines. In this capacity, he personally eliminated 35 Category I vulnerabilities and downloaded 23 Microsoft patches for future use by the other technicians.
