Kleiman vs Craig Wright Lawsuit

 

Who was Dave Kleiman?

Kleiman v. Wright (9:18-cv-80176) District Court, S.D. Florida

Dave Kleiman (1967 – April 26, 2013)

“Born in 1967, Kleiman was an adoptee and interested in computers and technology as a child. Despite acute knowledge of computers in the nineties, he worked in law enforcement in Florida. A 1995 motorcycle accident turned him further towards computers.

He appeared on various media programs and penned books about passwords and digital security. By the beginning of the 21st century, he wrote for the same security mailing list Satoshi Nakamoto used to introduce Bitcoin.

Gizmodo obtained an email in which Wright seemingly asks Kleiman to co-author the paper. “I need your help editing a paper I am going to release later this year. I have been working on a new form of electronic money. Bit cash, Bitcoin…” it reads. “You are always there for me Dave. I want you to be a part of it all.”

Kleiman’s friends are by no means convinced their friend and partner helped create Bitcoin. Though, both say he had the talents.

Gizmodo reportedly obtained “an unfinished draft of a trust contract showing Wright entrusting Kleiman with 1.1 million bitcoins in 2011.” That sum, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, was to be returned to Wright down the road”.

Dave Kleiman passed away as a result of MRSA. That, along with the disappearance of Wright, means the world may never truly know. His friends say that, if Kleiman was truly Nakamoto, they would not even bother trying to crack the security protecting his share of the Nakamoto fortune.

Dave Kleiman (1967 – April 26, 2013)

Occupation: Forensic computer expert

At the age of 21, Kleiman was named United States Army Soldier of the Year. He received the Army Achievement Medal and a commendation signed by the Secretary of the Army. The commendation said in part, “Appearance, knowledge of general military subjects, current events and other subjects covered coupled with your strong dedication to duty, never failed to produce anything but outstanding results.”

After distinguished service in the Army, Kleiman returned to his hometown and became a sworn law enforcement officer for the Palm Beach County Sheriff‘s Office (PBSO).[3] In 1995, a motorcycle accident left him paralyzed, requiring the use of a wheelchair. The life-altering disability did not slow him down for long. He continued working at PBSO and attained the rank of detective. He also worked as a System Security Analyst in the Computer Crimes Division and helped configure the Computer Forensics Lab. Kleiman went on to work at a number of high tech companies before becoming a partner in a computer forensics business. Kleiman died in his home in April 2013 seemingly of natural causes related to complications from a MRSA infection.

Some of Kleiman’s most notable work took place at S-doc where his role was Chief Information Security Officer. While there he developed a Windows encryption tool that surpassed NSA, NIST, and Microsoft Common Criteria Guidelines. This technology was used at NASA, U.S. Dept. of Treasury, Office of the Inspector General, and the US Post Office. Cryptography was routinely used at S-doc to develop several products, broadly aimed at the reliable and verifiable transmission of data and messages, centered around the idea of an “unalterable, encrypted audit log system”.

Kleiman was also a regular contributor to cryptography and security mailing lists where discussions included technical aspects of cryptosystems and the politics of cryptography. Kleiman was a long-time member of the same Metzdowd Cryptography mailing list where Satoshi Nakamoto first announced Bitcoin on Oct. 31, 2008.

Kleiman held the following certifications: Information Systems Security Management Professional (ISSMP), Information Systems Security Architecture Professional (ISSAP), Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Information Forensics Investigator (CIFI), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified Anti-Terrorism Specialist (CAS), Certified Computer Examiner (CCE), a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE).

For multiple years, Kleiman was awarded Microsoft MVP for Windows – Security.

Who was Dave Kleiman?

2015/12/09 The Strange Life and Death of Dave Kleiman, A Computer Genius Linked to Bitcoin’s Origins. Andy Cush – Gizmodo

Kleiman was born in 1967, and, according to an obituary, was adopted by Louis and Regina Kleiman of Palm Beach Gardens sometime after that. (Regina Kleiman is deceased, and Louis, now 94, did not respond to repeated contact attempts.) He told friends that he’d been interested in computers and technology as a child. But even to Paige, who calls Kleiman his best friend, his early life was something of a mystery.

In 1986, Kleiman began serving in the U.S. Army as a helicopter technician. He returned home from the Army in 1990 and began working for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office several years later. His training officer was Patrick Paige, with whom he later founded a business called Computer Forensics, LLC, in 2012. The men were fast friends. Kleiman gave Paige his first computer, a DOS machine that required command-line input to operate, and would visit Paige at his home to help his daughter access games with it before the two went out on patrol.

2013 Craig Wright tribute video to friend Dave Kleiman (some say this pair is “Satoshi”).

A very personal and touching tribute to late David Kleiman by Craig Wright. Originally recorded in 2013, but only available in Flash format.

Video originally entitled “Dave Kleiman – RIP (1967 – 2013)”.

“Dave was in hospital and had been left too long, so ended up with infected bed sores and all sorts of problems,’ Craig says.

‘Things were getting it worse and I don’t think people there really cared.

‘At the end of it, he got sick of the pain and checked himself out without telling anyone.’

He (Dave) was my friend,’ Wright says sadly, his voice beginning to falter.

‘This will probably come out anyway. The US government knows it all already.

He (Craig) tells me Kleiman died in poverty because his money was seized during an investigation into a Costa Rica-based Bitcoin exchange called Liberty Reserve, which was one of the earliest Bitcoin exchanges.

‘Early in 2013, the Americans sized Liberty Reserve and seized all funds there, saying these guys fund drugs and terrorism and everything like that. Which, so do banks, honestly.

‘When it was shut down, all his money was seized.

‘Dave had a lot of Bitcoins. But they were… wherever Dave left his Bitcoins.’
