Jacob’s wiki bio is below.


Jacob Appelbaum (Wikipedia excerpt):

Jacob Appelbaum is an independent computer security researcher and hacker. He was employed by the University of Washington, and is a core member of the Tor project,[4] a free software network designed to provide online anonymity. Appelbaum is known for representing Wikileaks at the 2010 HOPE conference.[5] He has subsequently been repeatedly targeted by US law enforcement agencies, who obtained a court order for his Twitter account data, detained him 12[6] times at the US border after trips abroad, and seized a laptop and several mobile phones.

He is currently living in Berlin and he has been contributing extensively in the selection for publication of documents revealed by Edward Snowden in June 2013.[7][8][9][10][11]

On December 28, 2013, at Chaos Communication Congress,[10][12] he presented documents revealed by Snowden, showing that the NSA can turn iPhones into eavesdropping tools and has developed devices to harvest electronic information from computer even if not online. The devices are listed in the NSA ANT catalog, published in part by Der Spiegel[9] and in full by LeakSource.[13]
