Francisco Blas Izquierdo Riera (klondike)

Although klondike had always had the curiosity inherent to hackers to take apart things to see how they worked and even fix them and learned how to use MS-DOS with 7 years so he could play Commander Queen on his father’s computer things looked as if he was just going to be a computer programmer. But, after spending a summer reading Bruce Schneier’s applied cryptography and taking part, after lots of persuasion by the organizers, on a CTF competition where he wrote his own tools things started escalating quickly.

Since then klondike has done things like participating in some CTFs, becoming a Gentoo Hardened developer, writing an Arduino bootloader able to cryptographically verify updates, contributed cryptographic code to the Haskell community, written a fast implementation of the TTH algorithm and championed the introduction of new standards in the ADC protocol.

Currently, klondike works as a CISO at a small financial company whilst trying to do his research in his spare time.

Talk Setting up the DECT network for Bornhack

For the first time we will try to set up a DECT network at Bornhack. It's still too early to say whether it will work well or not, but in this talk we will cover what we did and learnt and how it is set up.
