Karsten bridges the three worlds of academic research, hacking, and industry. His academic research with the University of Virginia focuses on privacy protection in large networks. His hacking projects-- at H4RDW4RE in the Silicon Valley or with the CCC in Berlin--assess (and usually break) proprietary cryptography. Finally, his consulting job at McKinsey helps him understand why corporations often choose technically inferior solutions.
