Memory Forensics and Malicious Code Detection in Cloud

Nous accueillerons Mercredi 8 novembre 2017 un groupe de professeurs de SCSC (Shandong National Supercomputer Center). Une presentation de leurs travaux est prévue à 14h en salle du conseil du LIP.

Title:Memory forensics and malicious code detection in cloud

Abstract:As an important branch of computer forensics, memory forensics is an effective way to discover the key system information and the characteristics of user behavior. This report outlines the advantages of malicious code detection using memory forensics technology, and describes detailed solutions to identify malicious behavior in cloud environment. Furthermore, to illustrate the virtual machine escape detection intuitively, we take the latest example, Venom (CVE-2015-3456), which is a vulnerability that takes place within the virtual floppy drive code of a virtual machine. Our tests indicate that our technology can effectively solve the problem of virtual machine escape detection.
