  • Understanding of hardware and software development lifecycles and their impact on security practices.
  • Applied knowledge of cryptographic algorithms / standards and knowledge of data structures and distributed systems.
  • Understanding of network protocols and how software works from assembly through to interpreted languages, and everything in between.
  • Familiarity with vulnerabilities such as memory corruption bugs (stack/heap/integer overflows, format strings), and techniques attackers can use to bypass common security protections (e.g., NX, stack canaries, heap protection, ASLR, etc.)
  • Knowledge and experience of embedded systems and operating systems, and hardware techniques for prototyping and debugging these.
  • Knowledge of Linux OS internals. Ability to self-learn any language, given appropriate resources to study and practice.
  • Practical knowledge of common white-hat exploitation toolsets and techniques for common flaws in low-level software, as well as web platforms (e.g., SQL injection, XSS, CSRF, SSRF, upload/download abuse, RCE).
  • Reverse engineering experience (e.g., IDA Pro, Ghidra).
  • Experience using debuggers such as GDB.
