Hi everyone,

Today we are continuing our series on Open Source security in Chips & Salsa episode 17! In part 2 of the series, CRob and I talk to Tamas (Tom) Lengyel who is a Senior Security Researcher here at Intel. Tom is involved in helping to secure many open source projects both on behalf of Intel and on his own time. Hear from Tom directly about his work in the video and check out his bio below!

About our guest:

Tamas has received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Connecticut where he built hypervisor-based malware-analysis and collection tools. He is the lead developer of KF/x, a hypervisor-based OS fuzzer developed for Intel's pen-test team that is now also open-source. In his free time he is maintainer of the Xen Project Hypervisor, LibVMI & the DRAKVUF binary analysis project and also volunteers as Chief Research Officer at The Honeynet Project, a leading international non-profit organization that coordinates the development of open-source tools to fight against malware. Tamas gave prior talks at conferences such as BlackHat, CCC and DEFCON.
