Well, I don't have any preference as such. I am open to any work that is related to security. I have just graduated from the college. I have background in Crypto, Reverse engg. and exploit development. But if you need a specific topic, I would say I want to add some features from grsecurity to main linux kernel. > Do you have familiarity > with a specific architecture (or do you want to _gain_ familiarity > with a specific architecture)? I have a good familiarity with x86,x86-64 but I also know arm. Although, its not a problem if there is a need, I will read about it. > > There's a small list of stuff that is related to the larger project > pieces that I try to keep up to date, of varying difficulty: > > http://kernsec.org/wiki/index.php/Kernel_Self_Protection_Project#Specific_TODO_Items All of these sounds interesting to me. Although I didn't fully understand some of the TODO items but few of these which I think I would like to work : - Move kernel stack to vmap area - Split thread_info off of kernel stack - Convert remaining BPF JITs to eBPF JIT (with blinding) - Write lib/test_bpf.c tests for eBPF constant blinding But, I can work on other things also, whatever you think is appropriate. I would prefer working on challenging project though. Hoping for a quick reply. I want to start working as soon as possible. > > -Kees > > -- > Kees Cook > Chrome OS & Brillo Security Thanks, Shubham Bansal Content of type "text/html" skipped
