My name is Jean-François Courteau and I have been around in the IT industry since 1999. I have worked with cryptography and public key infrastructure (PKI) since 2010 and I have developped an expertise with encryption, certificates and more generally with privacy features and issues.
As of 2020, I am employed by LGS, an IBM subsidiary, as a network and infrastructure architect, specialized on Cisco equipment and Red Hat Linux. I have worked with government agencies, insurance companies and financial institutions as an analyst and architect, and cryptography has always been the most exciting part of my contracts.
Being a fierce advocate of net neutrality, online privacy and open source software, I do not use Google or Facebook services for anything else than entertainment. All my personal emails, documents and websites are hosted on my own personal servers. Just like this application, that I first developed for personal use, but that I want to offer publicly, for free.
