i'm back at cloudflare
I'm back in the Crypto team at Cloudflare's London office for the next ~3 months.
If you didn't already know I spent some time there last year working on a protocol for bypassing CAPTCHAs on a load of sites for Tor and VPN users.
(George Tankersley gave a talk at RWC this year if you're interested, though the cryptographic design has changed significantly since then.)
I'm not gonna miss the 3hr round-trip to commute to RHUL -- but I'm planning on checking eprint every day if this counts for staying on top of current research?
I've been respiring; both during physical exercise and throughout periods of relative inactivity (e.g. sleeping/watching robocop).
Went to New Zealand, as promised, and presented work that I published with Carlos Cid at ACISP 2017. There were 7 people in the room.
Also, ran up a volcano at a pace indistinguishable from an average walk (check my strava).
Ruined (cryptographically) some work that I was doing with Martin Albrecht for about a year (lol). I only save cryptanalysis for my own work...
Celebrated the end of May, sponsored by Jeremy Corbyn.
Renewed my letsencrypt certificate for the charred remains of the raspberry pi that still clings to life in order to serve this website. I hear it's wailing death throes when the silence of night takes hold.
Sent my rhul laptop to an early grave via some sort of ssd fault. It had all my ssh keys on it and so I believe that I'm sort of fucked now.
