Blackhat next week

Filed under: Misc,Rootkit,VM — Nate Lawson @ 5:00 am

I’m headed for the Blackhat conference next week. We’ll be giving our talk on why a 100% undetectable hypervisor is impossible

We’ll also be releasing our toolkit (“samsara”, an ongoing cycle of rebirth). This is the same code we will use for the Blue Pill challenge whenever Joanna and crew are ready. My hope is that it provides a nice implementation of the tests we’ll describe in our talk and a useful framework for other researchers to add new tests. We expect this will end the irrational fear of hypervisor rootkits and show attackers why spending their time developing one would be futile.

If you run into me, be sure to say hello.
