Senior Offensive Security Researcher
- Haifa, Israel
Do you find Security and SW/HW/Crypto/Physics an irresistible combination?
Side-channel, Power-Analysis, Fault-Injection and Reverse-Engineering state-of-art techniques for local or remote security attacks fits well into both the real and imaginary parts of your life?
Researching, finding, mitigating and preventing the future "big-bang" vulnerabilities and exploits across system/architecture/design/implementations/validation aspects in the most advanced computing platforms, SoCs and IPs is what really kicks you? - If YES is the answer, it may be the beginning of a great match...
Intel's corporate IPAS organization (Intel Security Assurance and Security) is looking for the proven hands-on experienced talents, Technical Leaders in breaking and protecting security of SW/FW/HW/Crypto products implementations, who are PASSIONATE about Offensive Security Research (OSR) - to join its iSTARE team!
iSTARE (Intel Security Threat Analysis & Reverse Engineering) team develops and applies multidisciplinary technical expertise and disruptive technology, to protect Intel's Platforms/SoCs/IPs from a broad spectrum of evolving Cyber risks and threats.
We combine decades of team experience in security with an extremely diverse engineering and science expertise, including: Electronics, Computers, SW, HW, Crypto, Math, Failure Analysis, Nanotechnologies, Silicon technologies, Chemistry, AI and more.
Responsible for leading or taking an active role in complex, multidisciplinary security research projects. Commands deep pervasive pulse on Intel business/technologies and emerging threat landscape in hacker community to prioritize offensive security research focus. Ability to navigate around ambiguities and obstacles to independently solve complex problems. Demonstrated expertise in vulnerability discovery, analysis and exploitation. Explores and invents software and hardware techniques as a method of attack against compute targets. Develops proof of concepts to characterize exploitability and impacts. Recommends systemic mitigations and demonstrates their robustness across a diverse portfolio of products. Leads automation pathfinding to improve security assurance capabilities of product teams. Shares expert insights and new learning and contributes intellectual property to internal and external communities. Requires knowledge of computer architecture, CPU design, SoC development methodologies & processes, SoC layout and manufacturing, chipset functionality, FW & HW security, crypto, x86 compute paradigms. Demonstrates effective communication with executives and productive collaboration w peer researchers.
