About

My name is Filippo Bigarella. I hold a MSc in Computer Science with a focus on Security & Privacy from the University of Trento, Italy. I currently work at Apple in the Security Engineering & Architecture department, mostly focusing on automated vulnerability discovery.

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.
