About Me

I am an IT professional living near Salzburg/Austria. Participating my first Chaos Communication Congress in 1998 in Berlin got me interested in the field of IT security. Over the years, I was able to contribute to this field, mainly in the area of Bluetooth security.

In 2004, I co-founded the trifinite.group - a group of security researchers that - in co-operation with the Bluetooth SIG - for many years helped to improve the device security of many different mobile handset manufacturers at that time.

After quitting my job as a researcher in a Salzburg-based public research company, I founded a company named toothR new media GmbH in 2007, which now offers consulting and development services. As part of my consulting work, I am part of the Professional Services Team of Greenbone Networks since 2014.

This page is a collection of all the blog posts I ever wrote. Especially in the very first posts, I was not quite sure what this blogging was all about. While importing these posts from a younger version of myself, I often had to giggle a little bit. There are rather big gaps between the posts, but beginning with today I will try to post on a more regular basis, again. I promise!

Besides my professional career, I like to meet interesting people, travel to nice places (including IT Security Conferences), snowboard in the alps, ride my OneWheel+ and to sail a Hobie Cat 16 on Chiemsee together with my lovely wife Eva.
