Joanna Rutkowska

Joanna Rutkowska spent the 2000s exploring various corners of computer systems technology, down to the level of actual processors and devices, trying to understand how these systems are supposed to work, as well as how they might be tricked to work contrary to the intentions of the creators. Then, in the 2010s, she designed and later led the work on Qubes OS, an open source system for security- and privacy-paranoid users. More recently, after a healthy sabbatical from infosec, she’s been building Wildland — an open source, less-centralized data storage solution.
