About the Winternship Program
Trail of Bits offers unique remote, short-term internship opportunities called "Winternships" (Winter internships). Winterships generally happen over your University's winter break. You get paid (~$2500) to work on a project that excites you and spend time with your friends and family. Unlike other internships, our "Winternship" program is designed for people who are ready to start working on day 1. You will take the skills that you have learned and apply them to a short-term research project. Vulnerability Research WinternshipCTFs are a common recommendation for learning Vulnerability Research, but most contests just last a weekend. Real vulnerability research takes time, and this winter we are excited to offer students paid internships to audit code, find bugs, reverse engineer protocols, or write analysis queries. Our researchers will be here to help by providing interns with suggestions and guidance.
At the end of the internship, you will write about your approach, results, and experience and present it to our team.
• Audit a library for vulnerabilities
• Perform root cause analysis of a CVE and write an n-day exploit
• Reverse engineer protocol parsing code and make accurate types and structures
• Write CodeQL queries for variant analysis
• Perform differential analysis to find bugs in libraries
• Propose your own project
You must be a student or recently a student
You must have at least 4 weeks of time between December 5, 2022, and January 27, 2023, to dedicate to the project
