In today's video, we're discussing the release of siguza's presentation from Zer0con 2018 called "The HIDeous parts of IOKit". The presentation talks about exploit techniques and how to get started with analysis on the IOKit components. The presentation is heavily based on the write-up of the IOHIDeous vulnerability for macOS that siguza dropped at the end of December 2017.
The presentation is pretty useful especially for those who are getting into iOS Jailbreaking and macOS exploits. A thing that many people don't realize is that iOS and macOS have a lot of things in common and they share a consistent part of the codebase.
The presentation is very well made, in my opinion, and it showcases the details about the IOKit in a very good manner that I find suitable even for the beginners in the iOS jailbreaking. Though this is a macOS-only vulnerability, there are a lot of things to take away from the presentation, so I've decided to make a video about it since I am sure that amongst the 73k of you, at least somebody will be interested in this kind of stuff.
