Media and Research Requests
For journalists of all media, please use my PGP key for e-mail communications. Most requests I receive are for validating claims of major security events or vulnerabilities.

About one out of every five events I examine turn out to be fully or partially true. Our little community is increasingly becoming filled with rotten apples.

There is also an assumption of anonymity on my part, with exceptions only in very specific and authorized situations.


For research discoveries and disclosure, I already have a trusted list of journalists. For individuals and groups looking to include me in their efforts, please communicate using my PGP key listed above. Do your due dilligence first. I get a lot of requests and vetting what is legitimate gets annoying.
