schliz writes “NCSU researchers are attempting to address today’s ‘blind trust’ of virtualization with new security techniques that ‘guarantee’ malware does not infect hypervisors. Their ‘HyperSafe’ software uses the Write-Protect bit on hypervisor hardware, as well as a technique called restricted pointer indexing, which characterizes the normal behavior of the system and prevents any deviation. A proof-of-concept prototype has been tested on BitVisor and Xen, in research that will be presented (PDF) at an IEEE conference today.”
