Enabling Fuzzers on AAOS Devices

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

A fuzz test is widely adopted by C++ developers to find security-related bugs. This page describes the categories of AAOS (Android Automotive OS) fuzzers and how to run them on AAOS-specific target devices.

Existing AAOS fuzzers

Create Fuzzers on AAOS targets the same way that you would on an Android Platform. See fuzzing setup and build instructions on the Fuzzing with libFuzzer page.

However, the execution path of the fuzz target on AAOS is different from that on Android phone devices. Hence, it is necessary to run specific fuzzers on AAOS devices to ensure that there are no security issues.

AAOS specific fuzzers are divided into the following categories:

See the following table for a list of AAOS specific fuzzers:

EVS fuzzers Computepipe fuzzers Other fuzzers
evs_halcamera_fuzzer computepipe _semantic_manager_fuzzer sbcdecoder_fuzzer
evs_virtual_camera_fuzzer computepipe _pixel_mem_handle_fuzzer
evs_haldisplay_fuzzer computepipe _pixel_stream_manager_fuzzer
evs_enumerator_fuzzer grpc_graph_fuzzer
local _prebuild_graph_fuzzer

Table 1: AAOS related fuzzers.

Compile an AAOS fuzzer

We recommend using a HWASAN device for running fuzzers. However, when not using a HWASAN device, follow these steps to compile and flash a HWASAN image locally:

  1. Run the following commands to compile the hwasan build and flash the build to the car system.

    source build/envsetup.sh
    lunch <car target>
    SANITIZE_TARGET=hwaddress m
    fastboot flashall # this will automatically flash the local built image to device
    
  2. Compile the fuzzer for EVS manager:

    mmma packages/services/Car/evs/manager/1.1/test/fuzzer/
    

Run an AAOS fuzzer

Once configured, follow these steps to run a fuzzer:

  1. Run the following commands to prepare syncing fuzzers to the AAOS system:

    adb root;
    adb remount;
    adb reboot;
    adb root;
    adb remount
    
  2. If you do not have a folder named /data/fuzzer on your device, create one.

  3. Go to where you downloaded and unzipped the build, and from there, run the following command to push the fuzzer on the device.

    adb sync data
    
  4. To push the testcase on the device, run the following:

    adb push testcase /data/fuzzer/testcase
    
  5. Run the fuzzer with the following command:

    adb shell /data/fuzzer/evs_fuzzer /data/fuzzer/testcase
    
  6. Verify the output.

    A successful run generates output similar to the following example:
