Обо мне

I am an experienced systems software developer. Closely familiar with ins and outs of how a typical x86-based computer works, how hardware works in general (including storage, network, graphics, etc) and how various operating system kernels, firmware, hypervisors, file systems and language runtimes are implemented or can be implemented efficiently.

I am always interested in a project where i can apply my software engineering skills to design and build systems-level software with ambitions performance, quality and security requirements.

Main proficiencies:

  • Cross-platform systems software development in C, C++. Some golang, rust and python if nessesary
  • x86 architecture, performance optimiziaion, virtualization and firmware, reverse engineering, 
  • Concurrency and parallelism from low-level hardware primitives to high-level algorithms. 
  • Virtualization, emulation and binary translation algorithms
  • Linux kernel development, windows kernel reverse engineering and general unix-like usermode.
  • Data protection, crypto and authentication
  • Compilers, debuggers and language runtimes
  • Software quality and security

Virtuozzon Hypervisor:

At Virtuozzo i was working with upstream QEMU/KVM open source hypervisor. My main role was to research inner workings of and implement support for Microsoft HyperV paravirtualized storage devices in QEMU/KVM hypervisor.

  • Analyzed block device emulation performance, optimized different VM migration cases
  • Reversed-engineered and implemented support for Windows HyperV paravirtual devices in Qemu
  • Implemented guest VM drivers in UEFI firmware
  • Debugged hard cases in huge KVM and Qemu code base
  • Communicated with open source community around KVM, Linux kernel, and Qemu

This allowed us to achieve significant compatibility and performance improvements when running Windows-based VMs on Virtuozzo server virtualization platform.

I had two major projects in Kaspersky:

Kaspersky Full Disk Encryption:

Designed and implemented an x86 bare-metal execution platform for running feature-rich preboot authentication code on BIOS and EFI systems for full disk encryption software with GUI, internationalized input, and two-factor authentication support.

  • Performed overall platform design, architecture and majority of low-level coding.
  • Implemented core systems, memory allocation, PCI and USB support and input devices.
  • Designed and implemented process VM to emulate Win32 execution environment during boot.
  • Implemented PE image loader, NT syscall emulation, C99 standard library.
  • Reverse-engineered UEFI and Legacy BIOS firmware.
  • Implemented custom debuggers and other supporting tools.
  • Implemented data encryption and authentication in resource-constrained environments.
  • Interviewed and mentored new hires.

The result of our team's work was preboot authentication support for full disk encryption software technologically and feature-wise on par with leading solutions on the market. 

It can also run DOOM by Id Software: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSVst8JKRyc

Kaspersky Secure Hypervisor:

Helped develop of a security-oriented type-2 hypervisor on top of an in-house microkernel design for use in industrial embedded systems. 

  • Maintained Linux and custom microkernel implementations of a virtualization driver.
  • Designed and implemented typed IPC mechanism for cross-VM communication
  • Worked with SeaBIOS integration for unrestricted guest support.
