Ed Schaller has had a long interest in computer security from both the defensive and offensive angles. Before professionally focusing on security, he worked as systems administrator, developer and architect at various companies. In his security work, he was a researcher at Brigham Young University's Internet Security Research Laboratory and is now employed by a health insurance company doing security assessments on both internally developed and third party applications and systems. Most of his current work involves Java applications running on IBM's WebSphere Application Server. Outside of work, Ed is married and has three small children, who, given their current ability to get into things at home, are destined to be great hackers.
