As the CTO of Info Tech, Inc., Charles Engelke led the effort to bring sealed bidding to the Internet, which requires public key cryptography to maintain the seal and provide digital signatures. As a result, native code solutions have handled more than US $1 trillion in US state highway and bridge construction bids so far. He is now working with a team to develop browser-based bidding software that uses the Web Cryptography API.
