Microsoft Updates Guideline on Windows Driver Security
« on: February 27, 2018, 10:03:38 AM »

Microsoft has released an updated guide on driver security. This new guide offers advice that developers could use to ensure Windows drivers are secured against basic attacks and preventable flaws.

The new guide —also available as a one-document PDF— is authored by Microsoft's Don Marshall and comes to replace an older help page and includes:
→  A security checklist for driver developers
→  A guide on driver threat modeling
→  A guide on how drivers should integrate into the overall Windows security model
→  A tutorial on how to use the Device Guard Readiness Tool to evaluate a driver's Hypervisor-protected Code Integrity (HVCI) compatibility
