about: I was the founder, chief architect, meatspace root-of-trust and codemonger of the now acquired and closed Skyport Systems (acquired by Cisco Systems in 2/2018). We built secure, hardware-two-man cloud-managed server that could be dropped into any environment with internet connectivity. The system used multiple techniques (secure boot, TXT dynamic root of trust, image fingerprinting, and a second, embeddable network host with authority over the x86 BMC) to allow it to be trusted and resistant to tampering or escape before the term "edge computing" was even coined. We had the best team I have ever worked with. I can hope to work with them again or a team like them.
