Speaker: Colin O’Flynn
Colin O’Flynn has been working with embedded electronics for over ten years. His introduction to electronics began with a Radio Shack 30-in-1 kit, but since then he’s moved on to a variety of slightly more complex, but rarely more stable, platforms. At a time he was involved in the open-source tool chain now used by Arudino, which transitioned into a job with Atmel as part of the low-power wireless division working on IEEE 802.15.4 devices. He has since returned to pursue his PhD at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. He currently researches side-channel attacks on embedded cryptographic devices, and is trying to make them accessible for researchers at lower cost than ever before.
