Quarkslab is a French company specializing in information security R&D, consulting and software development. Our expertise is in combining offensive and defensive security to help organizations adopt a new security posture: Force the attackers, not the defender, to adapt constantly. Through our consulting services as well as our software we provide tailored solutions to organizations, helping them to protect their assets, sensitive data, and users against increasingly sophisticated attacks.
Quarkslab is an avid and active user of, and contributor to, Open Source Software and develops and maintains state-of-the-art security tools such as LIEF , QBDI, Triton, Irma, and several other projects.
We develop two commercial software products: QFlow, a platform to automate and orchestrate security analysis of files at scale, and QShield, advanced code and data protection software to disrupt code lifting, reverse engineering and tampering attacks.
You will be joining the mobile team, as an iOS/macOS security researcher. Your daily work will consist of vulnerability research on the XNU kernel and associated components, through reverse engineering closed source code, code auditing available source code, developing tools such as fuzzers to ease the process of vulnerability research.
Your work will go from vulnerability research to implementing Proof Of Concept of the exploitation of vulnerabilities, and bypassing the mitigations. You will also be potentially required to create and deliver training, internally and / or externally.
