Research and Development

Rather than representing a definitive guide, this document represents a review of the specific security issues identified during Portcullis Computer Security Ltd’s recent research into System V shared memory segments and their usage.

What follows should, however, provide a high-level summary of issues, impacts and methods of remediation in cases where System V shared memory segments are used in an insecure fashion. This paper was released as part of my presentation at 44CON 2013 entitled “I miss LSD“.
