About strategy and tactics:

Sun Tzu

(around 500 BC in Qi, China) is the author of The Art of War, a widely influential work on military tactics and general strategy that also affected philosophy. In my honest opinion it should be mandatory for everyone to read and understand this book – or to use Master Sun's words:

„[...] It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle. [...]“

About "Basti":


my name is Sebastian – nick name


 –, I'm from Bavaria, working in Ingolstadt and living in Dollnstein, a village within the beautiful landscape of the Altmühltal. Beside being married to my beloved wife Tanja Bartsch – maiden name


 –, I work in Test Engineering for manufactoring of automotive RADAR sensors at

Continental AG

's ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) lead plant in Ingolstadt. 2018 I was promoted to Team Leader, 2022 I became

Senior Expert "Cyber Security in Production"

. My personal interests are in sciences like from behavioral biology up to astrophysics, technologies as in cars or computer systems and libertarian left politics.

Born in 1987 in München (Munich) my parents Udo and Doris Bartsch temporarily moved into the United States for an business expatriate to Huntsville, Alabama. Back to Bavaria I grew up on the countryside, in the placid village Maitenbeth which is around 30 km east of Munich, with my younger brother Jonas and my two little sisters Theresa and Pia Bartsch. With our motorhome we traveled many different countries along Europe.

After finishing my Abitur at

Luitpold-Gymnasium Wasserburg

(High School) I started studying mechanical engineering at the Technical University Munich but ended up with an Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from

Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften FH Ingolstadt

. In 2014 I finaly completed my Master of Science in Electrical Engineering at the

Hochschule München

(also see graduation and employment certificates).

While studying I freelanced as an Software consultant for web applications with PHP and MySQL and finished projects at


(Java-EE Server) and


(FPGA with Matlab/Simulink). My scientific research of Next-generation networks culminated into the master's thesis

Specific Transmission Characteristics of WLAN in Comparison to UMTS

(Real-time operating system, Internet Protocol and R), which is freely publicated (including LaTeX-typeset). Beside my different experiences at plenty facilities – like handcrafting with handicapped persons at a sheltered workshop, repairing cars at a service station or as a cashier at a super market – I also volunteered for


(Pirate Party) by managing the Social Media appearance during German federal election in 2009.

Focusing on Strategic, Information and Operational Security – in particular to protect our privacy and freedom – I professionally deal with network communication protocols, vehicle bus standards (CAN-FD, FlexRay and BroadR-Reach) and automotive "cybersecurity" (OEM requirements, cyber-security laws, TARA/ATA based process development and implementation of security test solutions in C; including key management, provisioning to Flash or SHE/HSM chips and SecOC in production). In 2018 I became Team Leader Test Engineering (Industrial Engineering) RADAR 'Application and Support'. 2022 I was promoted to Senior Expert 'Cyber Security in Production'. In addition to this web page I operate my own Linux systems with different services like a SSL/TLS secured Apache HTTPS server or a Tor proxy relay. But since cryptography shouldn't be done by amateurs I go with

Bruce Schneier

's words on hackers: „Only amateurs attack machines; professionals target people.“

Finaly, as my family still loves traveling around to keep on visiting our planet, you maybe will meet Tanja & Basti somewhere:

„And the sky's the limit.“ \\//_
