Defending against Hackers: Exploit Mitigations and Attacks on Arm Cortex-A Devices

With the proliferation of Arm-based mobile and IoT devices, exploit mitigations for Arm-based devices are often the front-line in defending these devices from hackers. For this reason it is important to understand how they work, and their limitations. This talk will look at the most common exploit mitigations available for C/C++ programs running on the Arm Cortex-A architecture and how these mitigations work under-the-hood to block certain categories of memory-corruption-based exploits. The aim of this talk is to educate developers on how hackers can bypass individual mitigations, and the importance of combining them to increase the level of security on these devices.
