Hi, my name is Niklas and I'm a computer enthusiast/hacker/engineer from Germany, currently studying Computer Science at KIT Karlsruhe.

My main interests with regard to technology include free software, dynamic high-level languages, functional programming, system programming, algorithms and IT security.

Alongside my studie, I currently freelance for factis research GmbH, developing web-facing and server-side components of Checkpad MED, a mobile patient record application for clinics and physicians. I'm always open for new challenges.

I have worked in IT security, where I experimented with exploits and developed payloads as part of a framework for client-side post-exploitation. I also wrote software demonstrating the exploitation of security-related issues, including man-in-the-middle attacks on online banking interfaces and tools to extract data from social networks.

Some open-source stuff:
