Who Am I?
My name is Colin O’Flynn. I’m trained as an electrical engineer, based in Nova Scotia, Canada. I’ve previously worked around the world for a variety of companies performing such diverse tasks as software programming, PCB design, prototype construction, installing devices on helicopters, RF layout, FPGA design, and a few others.
More recently I’ve been working on embedded security. I’m currently an assistant professor at Dalhousie University, and I also run a start-up (NewAE Technology Inc.), and completed a PhD on the topic. I’ve spoke extensively at conferences on this topic, so you may have seen me around somewhere. The most popular project I do is ChipWhisperer, which is an open-source tool for specific low-level attacks.
Previously I was fairly active in some of the open-source AVR toolchain development, which is what powers the Arduino platform. This ultimately led to working as a consultant with Atmel for several years.
