BootStomp: On the Security of Bootloaders in Mobile Devices

Audrey Dutcher

In our paper we present a novel tool called BootStomp able to identify security vulnerabilities in Android bootloaders (such as memory corruptions) as well as unlocking vulnerabilities. During its evaluation, BootStomp discovered 6 previously unknown vulnerabilities across 4 different bootloaders. Finally BootStomp has been open-sourced to help the security community.
