Topaz project - home network security app
We hope Topaz app can help users to improve their concept of network security. My Achievement Highlights:
  • Designed the Topaz 1.0 Android app architecture.
  • Implemented device recognition and vulnerability scan.
  • Collaborated with managers, UI/UX designers, and other developers to discuss how to design this app.

Atom project - IoT security SDK
Atom project provides a SDK to IoT vendors, so they can integrate with our SDK to protect their IoT devices. My Achievement Highlights:

  • Ported our native daemon (Written in C++) which was used in other IoT devices to Android, so we could reuse our code, we don't need to implement the same thing again on Android.
  • Developed Atom SDK for application layer, this SDK is in charge of communicating with our native daemon which would run in the background and periodically upload the device status to our server.
  • Developed the web console which visualizes the vulnerabilities or anomaly behaviors on vendor's IoT devices.
  • Refactored the code using React.js, Redux, and ES6 to enhance the readability and maintainability.

Yamato project - VPN app & SDK
Yamato app provides several features related to VPN, including data compression, public wifi protection, ad-block, and app protection. It also provides a SDK for internal teams in Trend Micro, e,g., Dr. Safety app integrates our SDK to protect user's network traffic when they connect to public WiFi. My Achievement Highlights:

  • Developed the Yamato Android app. We used a 3rd-party VPN library which is written in native code, and we modified it to meet our requirements, e.g., we bypass not important packets to reduce the traffic to our server.
  • Developing network protection SDK for Dr. Safety app, collecting their feedback, and fulfilling their requirements.
  • Attended the brainstorming meeting with UX designers to design the features of this product, e.g., Some people with lower 3G/4G data plan care the network data usage very much. Therefore, we utilize the data compression feature of Yamato service, and design an app which visualizes the data usage, data plan limitation, and how many data usage the app saved for him/her.

JewelryBox project - photo & video management app 
JewelryBox is a photo and video management app. It needs to work with our hardware box. My Achievement Highlights:

  • Developed Android app including several features such as authentication, pairing to box, view/ (auto-)upload/ delete/ edit/ share photos, add friends, notifications, new photos detection, QR code scanning, etc.
  • Communicated with other cooperative teams and UI/UX designers, e.g., integrate with account service team as our authentication mechanism and integrate with cloud storage team to store users' albums.
