Virtual machine introspection is a technique used to inspect and analyse the code running on a given virtual machine. Virtual machine introspection has gained considerable attention in the field of computer security research. In recent years, it has been applied in various areas, ranging from intrusion detection and malware analysis to complete cloud monitoring platforms. A survey of existing virtual machine introspection tools is necessary to address various possible research gaps and to focus
more » ... on key features required for wide application of virtual machine introspection techniques. In this paper, we focus on the evolution of virtual machine introspection tools and their ability to address the semantic gap problem.
