    • C++

    Recreate signatures of Clang's builtin functions.


    Verification Example Framework Static analysis Active Open-source

    • C, C++, RuC, Python

    The growing list of examples for C/C++/RuC analysis & verification. To be open sourced.


    Analysis Server Protocol Static analysis Active Highlights Open-source

    • C, C++

    The protocol that it is used to unite static analyzers and IDEs, not only for IDE tasks. Inspired by language server protocol


    Wireguard CLI Uncategorized projects Open-source

    • Python

    A simple console interface for adding peers to Wireguard configuration files.


    GostCode Uncategorized projects Open-source

    • C#

    Inject full source code listing to russian GOST documentation in Microsoft Office format, even if it is huge.


    SLABInject Uncategorized projects Open-source

    • C

    Inject pages to SLAB caches in Linux. That may help improve performance and stability in memory-critical drivers in constrained environments.


    SECCOMP for legacy kernel Commercial EXTERNAL

    • C, C++

    SECCOMP mechanism has been ported to older Linux to facilitate LXC integration.


    Package Manager for router software Commercial EXTERNAL

    • C, C++

    A custom package manager has been coded for a commercial router software. It was based on opkg, but supported many additional features.


    OpenVPN solution for router software Commercial EXTERNAL

    • C, C++

    A custom OpenVPN solution for Linux-based router software was architected, developed and made available publicly. Partially supports cryptography offloading and packet traffic acceleration.


    Containerization support for router software Commercial EXTERNAL

    • C, C++

    A complete solution based on LXC has been written for commercial router. It was created with resource constraints in mind, so it actually could provide working containerization on a disk drive smaller than 30MB.


    OverlayFS support for router software Commercial EXTERNAL

    • C, C++, Bash

    OverlayFS support has been implemented in Linux-based router software package. While the OverlayFS itself is a kernel's feature, a lot of efforts were put into making it supported on a complete solution level, with booting process altered, security, secure erase and other levels sorted out.


    Refactoring of USB Host Controller Driver Commercial EXTERNAL

    • Assembler, C, C++

    Host Controller Driver used in one of commercial SoCs has been fatally flawed. Fixing it was a major challenge, which required creation of a custom static analyzer.


    IPSec solution for router software Commercial EXTERNAL

    • C, C++

    An L2TP/L2TP+IPSec solution for Linux-based router software was architected, developed and made available publicly. It also works with partial cryptography and packet traffic acceleration.


    Certificate Store for router software Commercial EXTERNAL

    • C, C++

    I've architected and implemented a complete certificate store module for commercial router, which supported certificate/private key generation, import/export, verification against a private key. Still used without major edits (as of 2022).
