Elonka Dunin

Samy Kamkar

Game Developer, Cryptographer, & Author

Elonka studied Astronomy at UCLA, and then joined the United States Air Force. After the 9/11 attacks, Elonka helped teach government agents about cryptography and what types of codes that Al Qaeda might have been using. In 2012 she was invited to be on the Board of Directors for the building of a new National Museum of Cryptology.

Elonka is co-founder and co-leader of a group of cryptographers who are working hard to crack a code on the famous Kryptos sculpture at CIA Headquarters, and led the international team that cracked the related KGB Cyrillic Projector Cipher in 2003.

White-Hat Hacker, Whistleblower, & Entrepreneur 

“Kamkar is the one-man production team and star of a YouTube channel Applied Hacking where he releases new security tricks almost weekly. No household item is safe from his curiosity: He’s tweaked a kid’s toy to open garage doors, 3D-printed a Masterlock-cracking robot, devised a fake charger that can sniff keystrokes, pranked a friend with a doorbell-ringing text message attack, and built a flying drone that can seek out and wirelessly hijack other victim drones. “I just assume everything is vulnerable,” Kamkar says. “It’s a pretty safe bet.” Read more on Samy’s work here.
