This paper presents the concept of sharing a hyper-visor address space with a standard Linux program. In this work, we add hypervisor awareness to the Linux kernel and execute code in the HYP exception level through using the hyplet. The hyplet is an innovative way to code interrupt service routines and remote procedure calls under ARM. The hyplet provides high performance and run-time predictability. We demonstrate the hyplet implementation using the C programming language on an ARM8v-a platform and under the Linux kernel. We then provide performance measurements, use cases, and security scenarios.

Preventing reverse engineering of native and managed programs Kiperberg, Michael (University of Jyväskylä, 2015)One of the important aspects of protecting software from attack, theft of algorithms, or illegal software use is eliminating the possibility of performing reverse engineering. One common method used to deal with these ...
Hypervisor-Based White Listing of Executables Leon, Roee S; Kiperberg, Michael; Zabag, Anat Anatey Leon; Resh, Amit; Algawi, Asaf; Zaidenberg, Nezer J. (IEEE Computer Society Press, 2019)We describe an efficient system for ensuring code integrity of an operating system (OS), both its own code and application code. The proposed system can protect from an attacker who has full control over the OS kernel. An ...
Creating modern blue pills and red pills Algawi, Asaf; Kiperberg, Michael; Leon, Roee; Resh, Amit; Zaidenberg, Nezer (Academic Conferences International, 2019)The blue pill is a malicious stealthy hypervisor-based rootkit. The red pill is a software package that is designed to detect such blue pills. Since the blue pill was originally proposed there has been an ongoing arms race ...
Enforcing trust for execution-protection in modern environments Resh, Amit (University of Jyväskylä, 2016)The business world is exhibiting a growing dependency on computer systems, their operations and the databases they contain. Unfortunately, it also suffers from an ever growing recurrence of malicious software attacks. ...
Hypervisor-assisted dynamic malware analysis Leon, Roee S.; Kiperberg, Michael; Zabag, Anat Anatey Leon; Zaidenberg, Nezer Jacob (Springer, 2021)Malware analysis is a task of utmost importance in cyber-security. Two approaches exist for malware analysis: static and dynamic. Modern malware uses an abundance of techniques to evade both dynamic and static analysis ...
