Fuzzer for libFraunhoferAAC decoder

Plugin Design Considerations

The fuzzer plugin for aac decoder is designed based on the understanding of the codec and tries to achieve the following:

Maximize code coverage

This fuzzer makes use of the following config parameters:

  1. Transport type (parameter name: TRANSPORT_TYPE)
ParameterValid ValuesConfigured Value
TRANSPORT_TYPE0.TT_UNKNOWN 1.TT_MP4_RAW 2.TT_MP4_ADIF 3.TT_MP4_ADTS 4.TT_MP4_LATM_MCP1 5.TT_MP4_LATM_MCP0 6.TT_MP4_LOAS 7.TT_DRMTT_MP4_ADIF

Note: Value of TRANSPORT_TYPE could be set to any of these values. It is set to TT_MP4_ADIF in the fuzzer plugin.

Maximize utilization of input data

The plugin feeds the entire input data to the codec using a loop.

  • If the decode operation was successful, the input is advanced by an offset calculated using valid bytes.
  • If the decode operation was un-successful, the input is advanced by 1 byte till it reaches a valid frame or end of stream.

This ensures that the plugin tolerates any kind of input (empty, huge, malformed, etc) and doesnt exit() on any input and thereby increasing the chance of identifying vulnerabilities.

Build

This describes steps to build aac_dec_fuzzer binary.

Android

Steps to build

Build the fuzzer

  $ mm -j$(nproc) aac_dec_fuzzer

Steps to run

Create a directory CORPUS_DIR and copy some aac files to that folder. Push this directory to device.

To run on device

  $ adb sync data
  $ adb shell /data/fuzz/arm64/aac_dec_fuzzer/aac_dec_fuzzer CORPUS_DIR

To run on host

  $ $ANDROID_HOST_OUT/fuzz/x86_64/aac_dec_fuzzer/aac_dec_fuzzer CORPUS_DIR
