MWR is pleased to announce that Nils will be presenting at the 15th BlueHat Security Conference on Wednesday 13th January 2016.
This year will continue with a solid speaker and topic selection that engage engineers, executives, and invited guests to discuss and tackle some of the hardest problems facing the industry today. Through this conference, engineering teams get deep technical information and education on the latest threats from proven industry experts.
BlueHat is set for Tuesday 12th January through to Wednesday 13th Januaryat Microsoft’s Redmond campus. The first day will set the stage of the threat environment and what is impacting customers today. The second day splits into four simultaneous tracks (two in the morning and two in afternoon) focusing on protecting customers and defense strategy, pivoting to help customers, software/service development, and attacks/exploits in the wild.
Topic: Windows Kernel Fuzzing
Attackers often rely on Windows kernel vulnerabilities to break out of application sandboxes and escalate privileges. To rapidly identify such vulnerabilities, we adapted techniques from browser fuzzing to assess the kernel and have reported a number of critical issues to Microsoft. All aspects of the fuzzer, from test case generation to testcase minimisation are highly distributed and it produces high quality testcases for reproduction. This talk will discuss our approach for fuzz testing the Windows kernel, from assessing the kernel’s attack surface and effective test case generation, to the design and architecture of a highly distributed fuzzer that scales to many hundreds of CPU cores.
