QNX Hacking

Security testing in the embedded microkernel OS


QNX is a microkernel operating system meant for embedded systems. QNX has recently announced that the OS is deployed in more than 50 million vehicles, which was the cause for my introduction to the OS. Vehicle hacking!

I have various notes, tools, and observations I've made while doing QNX security testing. Some notes are simply on the architecture of QNX systems, since not much is published online, while other notes relate to actual security observations and tests which I've performed on QNX systems.



Many of these projects were done for fun and out of a love for programming. They may not be polished or even complete. If you'd like more information about a given project or the process used in creating it, you can always contact me.
