Hi everyone,

Intel is very active in the open source community as maintainers and contributors to many projects. With Chips & Salsa episode 15, we start a new series with a team at Intel focusing on open source security. In this episode we talk to Antonio Gomez who manages a team of industry experts who look for and help mitigate Linux security issues. From fuzzing Linux Kernel drivers to helping develop the KF/x hypervisor based OS fuzzer and contributing Linux Kernel mitigations, this team is contributing their expertise to help the entire ecosystem. Hear from Antonio about how the team also open sources their fuzzing tools and scripts and more!


About our guest:

Antonio is a software engineering manager in the software security and privacy team. He joined Intel after spending almost 15 years in academia where he was a researcher in HPC, performance and large scale scientific problems with a focus on nuclear fusion. He holds a PhD in computer science. He has finally settled down in Oregon where he leads the most awesome software security team ever!
