Hi, I’m Henrique! πŸ‘‹

Born in Portugal πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή . I am a Master’s student πŸŽ“ in Computer Science and Engineering at TU/e, in Eindhoven πŸ‡³πŸ‡±. At the same time, I’ve been working at Protocol Labs on the decentralization of the web 🌐. I believe in the transparency and openness of the world, in a united Europe πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί and that we should all have equal rights πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ.

Lately, I have been reading πŸ“š β€œConventionally Yours” and 1 more. On the big screen, the last movie 🎬 I watched was “Cryptopia: Bitcoin, Blockchains & the Future of the Internet” and the last episode πŸ“Ί was from “RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under”. On the musical side, the artist I’ve been listening 🎧 to the most is Marina.

As I usually say, one more month has passed and we’re already in June! If everything goes on well, this is the last month of classes and exams of my Master’s first year.

It’s been very busy, and I’m pretty sure this month will be even more. There’s assignments to deliver almost every week for the many courses I have and I have to start preparing for the exams too.

In other news, I visited Den Haag, Maastricht and Tilburg! I also managed to dedicate more time to photography and revamp my photos page. But let’s be honest: I’m always changing something on this website so it’s not as if that’s news.

I leave you with one of my favorite pictures of the month, but I invite you to check out the other ones!

A few days ago I saw a blog post by GitHub announcing their support for security keys in SSH operations. After a bit of search, I discovered that OpenSSL 8.2, released last year, lets us use our FIDO2 devices (such as Yubikeys) to “unlock” our SSH private keys. This way, we don’t need the cumbersome GPG <-> SSH relation.

I tried it, and it was nice. I don’t know if I’m going to start using it right away because not every place uses OpenSSL 8.2+ yet, but soon, very soon.
