Summary : The talk will cover several kernel mode topics on win32. The main target are kernel developers and testers so they will learn what to do, what to look for in the testing stage and how to make their lives easier with automated tools. It is divided in four sections:

1. Basic concepts on kernel space, entry points and how to validate and capture data locally.
2. Common mistakes and how to avoid them.
3. MSRC kernel cases samples and how we fixed them.
4. What developers can do to catch these common mistakes: static analysis, WDK fuzzers, dynamic analysis, etc...
