The authors propose and analyze a novel approach for security based on an execution behavior of an application program, which aims at detecting previously unknown anomaly execution patterns. Their scheme, which is a sort of hardware-based approach, uses the basic block information of an application program for the purpose of detecting and preventing unknown anomaly execution behaviors effectively. Furthermore, they present a possibility to connect their scheme with an existing branch prediction scheme such as BTB (Branch Target Buffer).
