Date Added: Nov 2009
Format: PDF

In the age of coordinated malware distribution and zero-day exploits security becomes ever more important. This paper presents secuBT, a safe execution framework for the execution of untrusted binary code based on the fastBT dynamic binary translator. secuBT implements user-space virtualization using dynamic binary translation and adds a system call interposition framework to limit and guard the interoperability of binary code with the kernel.
