Paranoid pragmatic security type; I helped develop the AppArmor mandatory access control system. If AppArmor isn't a good fit for your security requirements, please consider running TOMOYO, SMACK, or SELinux.

For more information about me, including an abridged book list, see my careers2.0 profile. Or if you're old-school and want to see all my LaTeX skills on display, my old-fashioned resume is also available.
