I am a first year computer science PhD student at UCSC working in the storage systems research center (SSRC). My research interests lie in security, systems, and kernel development. Currently I am working on deniable/steganographic file systems.
My current research project is the Artifice Steganographic File System.
Which hides data in the free list of an existing file system utilizing pseudorandom entropy sources for obfuscation and
erasure coding/secret sharing for redundancy and repairability. Currently I am implementing a proof of concept for the initial design.
Here are two of my hardware projects based on the raspberry pi
Apple ][ pi
Commodore 64 emulator machine
Since these postings, iterations have been made on the keyboard firmware for both devices, and a DB-9 to USB converter was built to allow for the use of a period correct Commodore mouse. Some tweaking and repair was also done on the monitor to improve the picture.
Mygithub pageis generally a good place to see current programming projects.
