I do application and network programming, system administration, a bit of hardware hacking, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

security: "I take the security of my tools very seriously. When implementing a new idea, threat modeling and robustness under failure are integral to the design process."

networks: "Secure protocol design is the foundation of network security. I have experience developing software for the Tor and i2p networks, as well as typical TCP/IP networks."

software: "My passion is to write good code. This means a careful balance of clarity, extensibility, and ease of maintenance."

I am party to a wager regarding the validity of Cicada 3301's PGP-signed messages. As fans of the puzzle are aware, the 3301 group uses a PGP key, fingerprint 6D85 4CD7 9333 22A6 01C3 286D 181F 01E5 7A35 090F, to uniquely authenticate their puzzle clues, public statements, and secure private communications. In response to a surge of unverified Cicada-style puzzles, a small group of 3301 librarians agreed to put a price tag on our level of confidence that these puzzles are fake. Taken in conjunction with recent signed disavowals of unsigned messages, this wager serves as a bounty to be claimed by anyone who can disprove the assertion that non-signed Cicada puzzles are fake.

Shouts to crashdemons who drew this thing up!

These days, most of my time is spent developing and deploying network security systems. I enjoy problem solving, application development, communications security, applied cryptography, photography, 2D graphics, 3D modeling, and autonomous robotics.
