OWASP June 2020 MTG- Understanding Syscalls on XNU

Online event

Syscalls are an integral part of many operating systems and acts as pivotal points between user-mode and kernel-mode communication. Given that vast available source code for XNU is available, it is possible to perform some very deep research into Syscall behavior and functionality. In this talk several aspects of Syscall behavior in relation to the XNU kernel including: • What are Syscalls • What purpose do Syscalls serve • How to enumerate XNU Syscalls • Identify Syscall specific functionality (i.e sysctl_in & sysctl_out) • How to perform automated and guided Syscall usage within a program utilizing DTRACE probes Robert Hawes is the VS-Labs Research Team leader at VerSprite LLC, operating as both a generalist and aspiring MacOS/iOS specialist. Robert’s day to day work involves building exploits targeting multiple different targets spanning Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, and Linux to name a few. When not working on vulnerability research and or exploit development, you can usually find him idling on IRC while furthering his knowledge into MacOS/iOS.
