This class is designed to introduce students to the best tools and technology available for automating vulnerability discovery and crash triage on Windows with a focus on delivering a practical approach to applying the latest technology in real deployments.
First we take a deep dive into fuzzing, covering all aspects of this practical approach to finding bugs. As the most approachable and versatile of the available tools, the student will apply various fuzzing techniques to several real-world pieces of software. Students will learn strategies for analyzing attack surface, writing grammars, and generating effective corpus. We will explore in detail the latest innovations such as harnessing code coverage for guided evolutionary fuzzing and symbolic reasoning for concolic fuzzing.
We also approach crash analysis through the lens of program analysis and time travel debugging. We will once again look at properties of how memory corruption manifests in a crashing condition. We will apply tools like reverse debugging and memory debugging scripts to assist in interactively diagnosing root cause of crashes. Then we will leverage the power of dynamic taint tracking and graph slicing to help isolate the path of user controlled input in the program and identify the exact input bytes influencing a crash.
This class will focus on x86/x64 architecture and closed source binary targets on Windows 10.
This class is meant for professional developers or security researchers looking to add an efficient fuzzing and triage component to their software security analysis. Students wanting to learn a programmatic and tool driven approach to analyzing software vulnerabilities and crash triage will benefit from this course.
Students should be prepared to tackle challenging and diverse subject matter and be comfortable writing functions in in C/C++ and python to complete exercises involving completing plugins for the discussed platforms. Attendees should have basic experience with debugging native x86/x64 memory corruption vulnerabilities on Windows and be familiar with IDA and WinDBG.
Students should have the latest VMware Player, Workstation, or Fusion working on their machine
