About

David Hulton organizes the ToorCon suite of security conferences and has spent over 20 years doing security research mostly focused on reverse engineering and cryptanalysis. He’s mostly known for developing some of the first wireless attack tools (bsd-airtools) in the early 2000’s, presenting the first practical attack on GSM A5/1 in 2008, and releasing a DES cracking service and tools to perform a full break of MSCHAPv2 authentication in 2012. More recently, his company Pico Computing was acquired by Micron Technology in 2015 and since then has been building their hardware security red team where his focus is on developing new techniques for attacking hardware devices and ways to protect them.
