Version 1.7 a new dawn

Speaker: Arne Padmos


Arne Padmos obtained a degree in information security from Royal Holloway. He has been engaged in side-channel analysis, reverse engineering, and hardware testing, and had also taught security analysis in Europe and Asia. Currently, he works at the other end of the security spectrum, trying to make email more secure and usable, with a focus on end-to-end encryption.
