Richard Housley

Rick Housley is a Research Scientist at Red Balloon Security and leads their advanced hardware reverse engineering efforts. He often finds himself at the end of a soldering iron hoping he has not bricked another expensive COTs product. His focus at Red Balloon includes the discovery of previously unknown vulnerabilities, novel firmware extraction techniques, and advanced physical reverse engineering using custom tooling. When not designing secure-boot defeating EMPs and interposers, he is building axe handles and baby rattles in his woodshop.
