I am involved in hardware, embedded software, protocols and security projects around the Internet of Things and consider myself a white-hat hacker.

I am working at ARM mbed on advanced IoT security solutions which allow detection and remote recovery from attacks or malware infection on embedded devices. My core security project is the uVisor, a secure hypervisor that enforces hardware security boundaries between embedded software components using the ARMv7M memory protection unit on contemporary ARM Cortex M3/M4 microcontrollers.

I have over 20 years of professional experience in embedded programming, hardware development and the information security business. I enjoy breaking things, working on microcontroller security and improving IoT security.

I regularly give talks on security …

… or make things

In my private time I love making/grokking things. I am playing with RGB strips to create light paintings and counter-advertising bags. I am the Co-Founder of active and passive RFID open source projects like SocioPatterns, Sputnik/OpenBeacon, OpenPCD and OpenPICC and I am committed to RFID related security research.

As a member of the Blinkenlights Stereoscope Core Team I designed the 2.4GHz OpenBeacon based wireless dimmmer and Ethernet WMCU Hardware that was used in the Toronto City Hall Installation.

My focus is on hardware design, embedded systems, RF designs, active and passive RFID hardware development, custom-tailoring of embedded Linux hardware platforms, real time systems, IT-security, hardware & software reverse engineering and security evaluations of embedded systems.
