My name is Salvador Mendoza, and I am security researcher; my opinions, projects and methodologies are mine. During these years, I learned that be secure is not a mental state, it is a complex process where each ramification conveys preventive fears and applied knowledges.
Thinking abstractly is the only way to be ahead of many things.
I am focusing in tokenization processes, payment systems, mag-stripe information and embedded prototypes. I have presented on tokenization flaws and payment methods at Black Hat USA, DEF CON 24/25, DerbyCon, Ekoparty, BugCON, Troopers 17/18 and 8.8 Conferences. Also I designed different tools to pentest mag-stripe information and tokenization processes. My designed toolset includes MagSpoofPI, JamSpay, TokenGet, SamyKam, BlueSpoof and lately the NFCopy project.
Proudly, I am Co-founder of Women in Tech Fund: https://womenintechfund.org/
At Women in Tech Fund, “We are a group of independent security researchers, and computer science researchers who believe that our field needs more diversity. We had witnessed how women around the world are challenged by numerous obstacles when attempting to join the technology field. From cultural biases through discrimination to lack of financial support, women have a lower participation in our community. We believe that we may encourage more women to enter and stay in this field.
The Independent Women in Tech Fund aims to help women attend security conferences by providing assistance with entry ticket and possible travel support. ”
