Eric Kmetz is a Software Engineer that has had a long-running interest in InfoSec. His hacking interests have spanned across BBSes, Phone Conferences, IRC, and TCP/IP vulnerabilities. More recently he has used his skills to work on software with the intent of creating software that is more tamper-resistant.
He's been attending DEFCON since 2003, as a Security Gooning for four of those years. In 2014 he went to his first BSidesLV and decided that it would be a great venue in which to give his first talk.
