Event Description

We're excited to have Kees Cook chat with us this month. He will most likely be talking about digital surveillance and physical privacy. A little more about him: Kees Cook has been working with Free Software since 1994, and has been a Debian Developer since 2007. He is currently employed by Google to work on Chrome OS Security. From 2006 through 2011 he worked for Canonical as the Ubuntu Security Team's Tech Lead, and remains on the Ubuntu Technical Board. Before that, he worked at OSDL where he helped admin the mirrors at kernel.org, and sometimes hacked on Inkscape. He has written various utilities including GOPchop and Sendpage, and contributes randomly to other projects including fun chunks of code in Wine, MPlayer, OpenSSH,and Wireshark. He's been spending most of his time lately focused on security features in the Linux Kernel.
