EPA-RIMM: A Framework for Dynamic SMM-based Runtime Integrity Measurement [article]

Brian Delgado, Karen L. Karavanic
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Early results are promising, and suggest that EPA-RIMM will meet production-level performance constraints while continuously monitoring key OS and hypervisor data structures for signs of attack.  ...  Runtime integrity measurements identify unexpected changes in operating systems and hypervisors during operation, enabling early detection of persistent threats.  ...  For RIMM purposes, SMM provides critical benefits: • SMM runs at a higher privilege than host software; • SMM has broad visibility into operating system and hypervisor (host software) memory 2 and CPU  ...
