Training Windows Kernel Driver (WDF) Development
This course is a "must" for any developer who wants to build kernel drivers (WDM, KMDF and UMDF) for Windows. With the Windows Driver Framework (WDF) Microsoft has created a new development environment for the driver programming (KMDF and UMDF), which facilitates many things, but also brings new challenges. The aim of this training is to uncover the background of the WDF and to compare it with the traditional Windows Driver Model (WDM) and to implement own kernel driver (device driver, device driver) projects. Practical examples cover the topics KMDF and UMDF objects, IOCTL communication, development environment, and hardware resources, .inf files, and device device code signing. The course is therefore aimed at all developers who need to implement new kernel drivers (KMDF and UMDF) projects quickly and efficiently. The Windows Driver Foundation is a new abstraction for kernel driver development. The Windows Driver Foundation (WDF) is based on the Windows Driver Model (WDM). The WDF offers two types of kernel driver development, the Kernel-Mode Driver Framework (KMDF) and the User-Mode Driver Framework. Especially the kernel programming with the traditional Windows driver model requires techniques that not only include the driver for itself, but the entire stack environment. The kernel-mode driver framework (KMDF) simplifies many device driver development tasks. The KMDF allows e.g. simpler handling of communication and PNP and power management, synchronization mechanisms are treated largely implicitly, as well as the handling of hardware resources for device drivers. The User-Mode Driver Framework (UMDF), on the other hand, enables the creation of filter drivers, such as USB and network filters on the application level, thus allowing the development and execution of a driver on a PC. With the UMDF drivers can be developed object-oriented. The UMDF model is linked to the COM model of Windows. However, UMDF drivers can not be used to drive hardware for device drivers.
