Application Security Through Sandbox Virtualization

In this paper, the authors are aimed at the creation of a secure, virtualized system sandbox environment at the level of the respective applications. The proposed sandbox model allows the users to generate a secure environment for various untrusted applications and resolve potential security incidents, such as zero day vulnerabilities. The resulting work is a functional sandbox within the MS Windows operating system, which protects the system against potentially hazardous applications. The sandbox has a minimal impact on the semantics and the time of the executed program and provides an efficient sandbox configuration interface.
