Several existing dynamic binary analysis tools use shadowmemory-they shadow, in software, every byte of memory used by a program with another value that says something about it. Shadow memory is difficult to implement both efficiently and robustly. Nonetheless, existing shadow memory implementations have not been studied in detail. This is unfortunate, because shadow memory is powerful-for example, some of the existing tools that use it detect critical errors such as bad memory accesses, data… CONTINUE READING
