Seeking undergraduate and graduate college students for Vulnerability Researcher (VR) internships for the summer 2019 at Raytheon Cyber Security Innovations (CSI) in Austin, Texas. CSI’s passion is work that challenges, engages, and empowers real-world mission impact which means our research and development efforts cover the full spectrum of security technologies for computer network operations. Candidates must play both sides of the fence—developing and defeating advanced new security techniques. Projects are undertaken on small teams in close coordination with customers to quickly deliver or enhance capabilities.
The strongest candidates will have a variety of low-level operating systems experience and cross-platform vulnerability research. If you've discovered a kernel paged pool exploit, modified JIT engines to add your own instrumentation to mitigate entire vulnerability classes, created a heap-based buffer overflow with ASLR/DEP defeats, used solvers to highlight interesting call/dataflow graphs, or created custom hardware emulators… you'll be right at home in CSI.
