System memory protection and vulnerability assessment in presence of software attacks

Mingbo Zhang
For each specific vulnerability, our mitigation either leverages a new CPU features such as Intel SGX or an existing CPU feature in a novel way to achieve adequate protection with a modest performance  ...  Qemu [15] with the dynamic binary translation (DBT) [47] engine is a unique approach for fuzzing.  ...  Techniques such as leveraging hardware watchpoints or transactional memory are fittable for fuzzing such vulnerabilities but not for run-time protection.  ...
