Sergei Skorobogatov

IRL Name: 
Sergei Skorobogatov
Biography: 

Dr Sergei Skorobogatov has background in chemistry, electronics, physics and computers. He received PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge in 2005 and MSc degree in Physics in 1997. His research interests include hardware security analysis of smartcards, microcontrollers, FPGAs and ASICs. He pioneered optical fault injection attacks in 2001, which have influenced major rethink within semiconductor industry on the security protection of ICs and forced introduction of new evaluation procedures and countermeasures. Sergei's previous research has substantially improved side-channel attacks and optical fault injection attacks. His recent research set new standards on direct data extraction from EEPROM and Flash memory, while latest achievements demonstrated superior imaging capabilities of embedded memory.

Ralf Burger

Biography: 

Ralf Burger is the author of the book "Computer Viruses: A High-Tech Disease". He presented the Virdem (first file virus for the DOS operating system which he created) model of programs at a meeting of the underground Chaos Computer Club in Germany in 1986. The Virdem model represented the first programs that could replicate themselves via addition of their code to executable DOS files in COM format. Burger is quoted as saying about viruses that "used properly may bring about a new generation of self-modifying computer operating systems".
