Here you can find some information about protocolbench, a private blog concerning communication protocols used in information technology.
As a computer scientist I’m working in the sector of smart cards since 2004 and I’m focussing on protocols used there. A detailed CV can be found in my profiles at Xing or LinkedIn. Your are welcome to follow me at twitter (mix of tweets in English language and German language). I’m the father of the open source test tool for smart cards called GlobalTester (and specially for ePassports and eID cards).
This is my personal blog to discuss topics around modeling and testing protocols (at the beginning mainly relating to smart cards and the protocols using there). I’m looking forward to getting your feedback an to discussing these topics with you.
Since version 2.1 and until today I’m working with my favorite integrated development platform (IDE) Eclipse. It contains an extensible plug-in system for customizing the environment to you own needs. Written mostly in Java, Eclipse can be used to develop additional applications and plug-ins, like GlobalTester as mentioned above.
The photography of the wooden bench previously used in the header of this blog was taken in Snowdonia National Park in Wales. During a walk close to Beddgelert we found this very nice example of a bench in summer 2013.
This photo was replaced May 2018 by the new one of a old workbench with a collection of vintage woodworking tools.
