OpenSecurity training videos

Posted on Wednesday, February 13th, 2013 in code, security, Videos by the machinegeek


OpenSecurityTraining has released a series of over 100 videos covering Introductory Intel x86: Architecture, Assembly, Applications, & Alliteration. The full YouTube playlist of the series can be found here. Trainer Xeno Kovah describes the course’s focus: “Intel processors have been a major force in personal computing for more than 30 years. An understanding of low level computing mechanisms used in Intel chips as taught in this course serves as a foundation upon which to better understand other hardware, as well as many technical specialties such as reverse engineering, compiler design, operating system design, code optimization, and vulnerability exploitation.”

For more information and to download the class material visit SecurityTrainingInfo. (We note that the “CMU binary bomb” link and some lab related downloads require an academic account, username/password, etc.)

We did, however, find this link to an Intel webpage with free downloads of the
Combined Volume Set of Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer’s Manuals referenced in the course and a trove other Intel dev manuals free for the download!

    This is exactly up my street!! I have been interested in hobbyist operating system design for a few years. (http://osdev.org)

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
