My public key



I studied Computer Science at the Technical University Munich ( Technische Universität München ) from autumn 1983 until spring 1989. The work for graduating (" Diplomarbeit ") was titled "Spezifikation einer parallelen Inferenzmaschine in Hinblick auf ein Transputersystem" (Specification of a Parallel Theorem Prover Targeted at Transputer Systems"), 15.11.1988, at the "Institut für Intellektik, then headed by Dr. Bibel, complementing a previously done work by a friend and me, "Implementation eines parallel arbeitenden Theorembeweisers in LISP und Erstellung von Simulationssoftware für Linearmaschinen (SIPATH)" ("Implementation of a Parallel Theorem Prover in LISP and Realisation of Simulation Software for Single Processor Machines"), 1987.

Right now I'm an employee at FI-TS, working in the Unix department overseeing high availibility systems und clusters, mainly Linux, but also Solaris/AIX/HP-UX. Additionally, I'm responsible for security in that domain. In my former live :-) I was a freelancer and also working for Datapat GmbH. My main tasks there were system administration (mainly Unix), (heterogeneous) networks and database programming. In my spare time (haha) I still consult for clients from my former life, which includes providing internet services to clients, including e-mail routing and providing, web server hosting and of course security consulting.
