Wes Brown is currently Chief Architect at ThreatGRID working on scalable systems for malware intelligence collection and correlation; he leads a small expert team and greatly enjoys the challenges of building a high performance cluster from a software engineering and architectural point of view. Liberal application of statistics, kernel hacking, hypervisor development, alcohol, coffee, cursing, his wife’s home cooking, and his fellow engineers make his job possible.
Brown is an expert at reverse engineering, having worked with security biometric devices, Intel’s HECI transport, encryption algorithms, and proprietary communication and switching protocols. He has developed protocol intercept code, device communication protocols, test and fuzzing frameworks. He is also a highly respected speaker at conferences, pioneering the concept of injectable virtual machines, and discussing malware analysis from a manual and automated perspective.
