Dynamic taint analysis (DTA) is a technique used for tracking information flow by propagating taint propagation across memory locations during program execution. Most implementations of DTA are based on dynamic binary instrumentation (DBI) frameworks or whole-system emulators/virtual machine monitors. The boundary of information tracking with DBI frameworks is a single process, while system emulators can cover a host, including the OS. Using system emulators, it may be possible to consider… CONTINUE READING
