♣ Title: BoKASAN: Selective Sanitization and Beyond
BoKASAN is a pioneering implementation of a practical binary-only Kernel Address Sanitizer (KASAN) designed to efficiently conduct address sanitization through dynamic instrumentation across entire kernel binaries. This innovative approach, named selective sanitization, primarily focuses on identifying and sanitizing target processes while significantly reducing the performance overhead often associated with dynamic instrumentation. BoKASAN leverages the insight that kernel bugs are predominantly relevant to processes initiated by a fuzzer. By selectively sanitizing memory regions related to these processes and leaving the rest unsanitized, BoKASAN achieves effective kernel fuzzing.
In terms of performance and efficacy, BoKASAN demonstrates practical applicability in closed-source systems. It achieves compiler-level performance similar to KASAN, even on binary-only kernels and modules. When evaluated, BoKASAN detected slightly more bugs in the Janus dataset and slightly fewer in the Syzkaller/SyzVegas dataset compared to traditional KASAN. Notably, it identified an equal number of unique bugs within a 5-day fuzzing period and executed a similar number of basic blocks. This innovative tool has also proven effective in discovering bugs in binary modules for both Windows and Linux kernels. The results underscore the impact of selective sanitization in its performance and bug detection capabilities.
Taekyoung Kwon's research interests primarily lie in information security, encompassing areas such as AI security, applied cryptography, authentication, security protocols, software security, and system security. He joined Yonsei University in the fall of 2013 as a Professor at the Graduate School of Information, where he established the Information Security and AI Security Laboratory (SEC Lab). Prior to his tenure at Yonsei University, he served as a Professor of Computer Engineering at Sejong University, and he completed his postdoctoral research at U.C. Berkeley. He received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. degrees in Computer Science from Yonsei University.
