Abstract

"Operating System Call Integrity of the Linux Operating System examines the security exposures of the Linux Operating System arising from functions used in its construction. The ITS4 commercial package was used to identify suspect calls. While the package highlights a large number of different calls, almost all vulnerable calls in the operating systems were string related operations including printk and printf related functions. The results showed that the drivers directory of the Linux Operating System distribution was the most vulnerable"--Abstract, page iii.
