Driver DevelopmentDevice drivers, as operating systems, are written in C. When applications interact directly with them, they become the kernel's last line of defense.
Course descriptionThis course will take you through the details of driver development in C. Learn about error handling, IoCtl and more, as well as the importance of device drivers as your kernel's last line of defense. Failing to use secure coding practices when programming them puts the whole system at risk.
