Someone asked about assignments and I figured it might be a good idea to write it down here. In general, we are gonna have 4 assignments in total. The first one will be about Multics (it’s perfect if you have never heard of it:). The 2nd one will be about Linux Security Module (LSM), which involves Linux kernel hacking (excited?). The 3rd one will focus on Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). Specifically, we will play with Intel SGX and ARM TrustZone (thrilled?). The last one will be about kernel fuzzing and we will fuzz the Linux kernel.
You could find the general schedule for each assignment from the syllabus. The deadline for each assignment will be 2 weeks. I don’t plan to make these assignments challenging but you do need some effort to learn if you are not familiar with some of the topics. Nevertheless, it is definitely doable! I will publish each assignment once we reach the corresponding topic.
