Biography of Jeroen Massar
Jeroen is currently working for his own company, Massar Networking, performing advanced network research and development for a variety of international customers.
Topics of work for Jeroen include network performance, monitoring, anonymity and circumvention of Internet censorship.
Before starting his own company he worked at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory in the field of Network Performance Profiling where he created the AURORA system for NetFlow and IPFIX analysis.
Jeroen is one partner of the duo operating the widely used SixXS Tunnel Broker & IPv6 Deployment project, a sparetime project that provides free IPv6 connectivity to thousands of users globally. In this project he developed and deployed the heartbeat, TIC and AYIYA protocols which are supported by the worldwide SixXS PoPs and the AICCU tool. AICCU enables IPv6 connectivity to users without hassle, it being in most important Open Source Operating System distributions and available for a myriad of platforms. To ensure that SixXS users can actually properly use IPv6 he also created the Ghost Route Hunter (GRH) project that monitors IPv6 BGP and over the years helped in debugging IPv6 routing issues.
Jeroen tries to keep up with the IETF and IRTF communities participating in IPv6 and routing related working-groups. He also promotes adoption of IPv6 and has added IPv6 support to various tools such as PuTTY and fping.
