Deigning title aims to give you the knowledge necessary to understand rootkits while exploring the FreeBSD operating system and kernel. Tinkering with computers has always been a primary passion of author Joseph Kong.
Designing BSD Rootkits: An Introduction to Kernel Hacking
He is a self-taught programmer who dabbles in information security, operating system theory, reverse engineering, and vulnerability assessment. He has written for Phrack Magazine and was a system administrator for the City of Toronto.
The book starts with a chapter dedicated to loadable kernel modules LKM which is natural since hackimg majority of rootkits today are LKMs. What comes next is a look at hooking, a programming technique that employs handler functions to modify control flow. It is the most popular rootkit technique kerneel Kong offers you an insight into how it works before moving on to discuss one of the hardest rootkit techniques to detect — direct kernel object manipulation DKOM as well as kernel object hooking KOH.
Designing BSD Rootkits
Kong continues by discussing run-time kernel memory patching and reveals how you can patch a running kernel with userland code. All the material described in previous chapters comes together when you go hands-on and get instructions on how to write a complete example rootkit that will bypass a Host Instrusion Detection System HIDS.
The book concludes with a very important topic — detection. As you can see from the details above, Designing BSD Rootkits is aimed at a knowledgeable audience that enjoys to dwell into very technical material and is comfortable with the C programming language.
Despite the low page count, the book is packed with very hacming material and it delivers exactly what it promises. A website for the book xesigning available here. It contains some bonus content as well as all the code ready for download. All the readers that wish to work with the code will find this quite valuable.
