Hi everyone,

I'm Srikavin, and I'm currently studying Computer Science and Math at
University of Maryland. I have experience with C and a working
understanding of system internals, and I've used strace in the past to
aid with reverse engineering unknown binaries.

I have not decided on a project idea yet, but I'm looking at "Implement
a syscall parser / parser test generator". I'm still gaining an
understanding of syzkaller's syscall representation [1] and strace's

Would writing more tests for prctl.c [2] be a good microproject?
