I am an engineer and cyber security expert fascinated and worried at the same time about the infinite possibilities of the Internet and the ongoing digitalization - for society and attackers.
Digital information drives real events and a growing number of components increasingly make autonomous decisions. These developments increase efficiency as well as the consequences of cyber-attacks. We no longer have physical laws that limit the complexity and dependencies of our designs and systems.
Things are objectively getting more complicated, coupled, and interdependent at superlinear rate.
The physical separation of critical systems, a proven concept in the past, is no longer sufficient to ensure security and safety in the digital world.
This site is a testbed for my Internet tools and repository of my writing and talks (e.g. at Defcon, Blackhat, or ISF). I spoke on Swiss TV and my work was covered by Brian Krebs, Bruce Schneier, and others. More on me on the about page or on Twitter.
The changes of the Internet are disruptive, like the introduction of the railroads and the automobile. This latest innovation is not the first to prompt critical questions regarding security and safety. New possibilities as well as threats emerge at the interfaces of technology, economy and society.
