Exploitation on ARM based Systems

This two day workshop will teach the participants how to exploit vulnerabilities in ARMbased environments on modern Linux systems. At the beginning the ARM Architecture will be introduced, followed by exercises involving the exploitation of classic stack based buffer overflows. Furthermore, the participants will learn about modern defense mechanisms such as W^X and ASLR and possibilities to bypass them.

Who Should Attend this Training?
