To make things worse, these anti-VMware techniques are applied not only in the payload itself, but also in the runtime packer(More)
The WS-Policy framework has been introduced to allow policy to be expressed and associated with Web Services thereby enabling organizations to manage the quality of their services. How the specified polices are kept consistent with the organization’s regulations, and how to match service and client policies requirements for effective service discovery, are(More)
