Lars Haukli holds an M.Sc. in Information Security from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and has been reverse engineering malware professionally since 2007. He designs and develops anti-malware technology, and is especially fascinated by obscure low level code and kernel mode rootkits. The primary source of inspiration for his work is the malicious code itself, as he realized a long time ago that many of the techniques used by malware authors may be used for both good and bad. Lars Haukli currently holds the position of Senior Security Researcher at Blue Coat Systems, who recently acquired his former employer Norman Shark. Prior to joining Norman, he held the position of Senior Engineer at NorCERT, where he reverse engineered malware to aid incident response.
