I haven’t written a whole lot about this on my blog so far. Isabell and I are going away on a journey. A long journey!
People or organisations often think about software security as only defined by the software itself. As long as the software has the right features I’m ok, right?Continue reading “Software security — process, operations and software — in that order”
I’ve worked with content management systems like Drupal and WordPress for about 12 years. I’ve been registered on drupal.org for over 10 years.

A friend just asked me where to find more information about Bitcoin. Here are the links I sent to this person.
When I grew up I was told by my parents to “never meet with strangers from the Internet” and “never get into a stranger’s car”.

It’s a type of cryptography that allow a prover to prove to a verifier that a certain statement is true, without revealing anything else apart from that statement. ZK-SNARKS, a variant of zero-knowledge proofs, is being built into Ethereum (it already exists in zCash). In this blog post I’ll refer to a very simple story that explain how zero-knowledge proofs work. Continue reading “Two balls and the colour-blind friend”
