Dr. Andrei Costin is a PhD graduate from EURECOM where he successfully defended his thesis on "Large Scale Security Analysis of Embedded Devices' Firmware." He is also a Computer Science graduate of the Politehnica University of Bucharest where he did his thesis work in Biometrics and Image Processing. While starting out his IT-career in the Computer Games industry, he has worked in the Telecom field and also was a senior developer at a specialized firm programming various GSM/UMTS/GPS sub-systems.He is the author of the MiFare Classic Universal toolKit (MFCUK), the first (and still only) publicly available FOSS card-only key cracking tool for the MiFare Classic RFID card family. He is also known as the "mister printer guy" for his "Hacking MFPs" and "Hacking PostScript" series of hacks & talks at various international conferences. Lately, he was spotted security-harassing airplanes with ADS-B hacks (though no planes were harmed during the experiments) and remotely hacking fireworks/demolition/pyrotechnic systems (though no fireworks show was spoiled and no buildings were demolished). He is passionate about security in a holistic fashion. At present, Andrei is mostly busy developing cutting edge security research for embedded systems as part of his FIRMWARE.RE project.
