Andrey Konovalov

Security Engineer

Andrey Konovalov is a security researcher focusing on the Linux kernel.

Andrey found multiple zero-day bugs in the Linux kernel and published proof-of-concept exploits for these bugs to demonstrate the impact. Andrey is a contributor to several security-related Linux kernel subsystems and tools: KASAN — a fast dynamic bug detector, syzkaller — a production-grade kernel fuzzer, and Arm Memory Tagging Extension (MTE) — an exploit mitigation.

Andrey spoke at security conferences such as OffensiveCon, Android Security Symposium, Linux Security Summit, LinuxCon, and PHDays. Andrey also maintains a collection of Linux kernel security–related materials and a channel on Linux kernel security.
