I'm a cryptographic engineer trying to improve people's privacy.
You can find me online at these locations (activity not guaranteed):words.str4d.xyz.
Some of the specifications I have helped to design and/or write:
- The Zcash Protocol, and various Zcash Improvement Proposals.
- IRTF draft: The ristretto255 and decaf448 Groups
- The age plugin specification
- ristretto255 VRF
Some of the software I have built and/or maintain:
rage: A Rust implementation of age file encryption. Also available as a Rust crate!
age-plugin-yubikey: A plugin for age clients which enables files to be encrypted to age identities stored on YubiKeys.
- Zcash: a digital currency using zero-knowledge proofs for privacy. I've been
one of the primary maintainers of the
zcashdfull node implementation since 2016.
