About Me

About Me

I am Javex and my real name is Florian RĂ¼chel. I currently am a student in IT-Security at Ruhr-University in Bochum. I have a strong intereset in improving the world's security in IT. I find that most software written contains security vulnerabilities that could be avoided.

So when I make software, I have a strong focus on security and try to keep my software safe. Furthermore, I believe in Open Source software and Kerckhoff's Principle and as such, I try to keep my projects as open as possible and use approved algorithms and implementations whenever possible.

If you have interest in what I currently work on, you can check out my GitHub Repositories where most of my interesting (and not-so-interesing) software lives. If you want to contribute on any of the projects I am working on, please feel free to contact me via Twitter or just create a new issue and make clear you consider this a proposal for an improvement. I will then react accordingly and possibly attach the "enhancement" label.

I am also a member of the Ruhr-University Bochum CTF-Team FluxFingers, so I also publish some writeups here from time to time.

Finally, you can find my public key here.
