Dan Kaminsky

Dan's an accomplished packet hacker who recently got a whole lot of bandwidth to play with.

Formerly of Cisco and Avaya, Dan is the founder of DoxPara Research, where he wrote the Paketto Keiretsu, a suite of experimental packet manipulation tools that exposed new functionality in existing TCP/IP networks. He has also worked on adding VPN functionality to OpenSSH, demonstrating problems with MD5 collisions, and most recently, he's been working on using DNS to trace the spread -- visually -- of Sony's malicious copy protection software. Dan comes here from Seattle, Washington, in the United States.
