About

My name is Filippo Bigarella. I am a MSc student in Security & Privacy at the University of Trento, Italy.

I learned to code by writing tweaks for jailbroken iOS devices. Among others, you may have heard of CleverPin, PasswordPilot or Springtomize. It was a lot of fun!

As time went by, I started digging into the security of iOS and macOS, which became one of my main interests. I found some vulnerabilities (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8).

I have been an intern at Apple in 2015, 2016 and 2018, working on static and dynamic analysis tools for vulnerability discovery.

There are always more things I would like to learn than I have time to pursue. In no particular order, some of my interests are:

  • Automated vulnerability discovery
  • System/OS Security
  • Binary formats
