Apple Media Products - Intern (Security Researcher)

Paris, Paris Region, France
Software and Services


Weekly Hours: 35
Role Number:200311573
Apple Media Products implements and deploys media services at scale, such as Apple TV+, or Apple Music. Expanding these services to new platforms and users means using a variety of media content protection mechanisms, existing or custom made. Based in Paris, we are passionate about security, and work closely with cryptographers and developers across Apple, worldwide. Speaking French is not required for this role. We're looking for interns to join us either in person or remotely, for 4-6 months.

Key Qualifications

  • Passionate about low-level security
  • Knowledge of reverse engineering and related tools, such as Hex-Rays IDA Pro or equivalent
  • Understanding of software vulnerabilities, exploitation techniques, and associated mitigations
  • Knowledge of assembly languages
  • Understanding of cryptography


In this project, you will have the challenge of evaluating the security of some of these content protection mechanisms. Using reverse engineering skills, you'll analyze various implementations of these mechanisms, that can range from hardware-isolated TEEs (Trusted Execution Environments) to software-based protected code, based on obfuscation. Building on top of public and internal research, you'll develop exploits for vulnerabilities in these environments, and produce tooling to work with the protocols they use. If this is you, we'd love to hear from you.
