Preventing execution of unauthorized software on a given computer plays a pivotal role in system security. The key problem is that although a program at the beginning of its execution can be verified as authentic, its execution flow can be redirected to externally injected malicious code using, for example, a buffer overflow exploit. We introduce a novel, simplified, hardware-assisted intrusion prevention platform. Our platform introduces overlapping of program execution and MAC verification… CONTINUE READING
