Linux Security Summit 2015/Bio/Halcrow
Mike Halcrow was the project lead for the ext4 encryption feature that was merged into the 4.1 release of the Linux kernel. A few years ago he built native disk encryption into Google Compute Engine, and he now spends much of his time working with various teams at Google as they integrate and deploy encryption. He's been a senior developer on the Microsoft BitLocker team, where he delivered key management features for Windows and maintained EFS. In the seemingly-distant past he was the original eCryptfs project lead at the IBM Linux Technology Center. He's recently taken an interest in tackling storage encryption challenges on mobile platforms.
