Pioneer: verifying code integrity and enforcing untampered code execution on legacy systems
We propose a primitive, called Pioneer, as a first step towards verifiable code execution on untrusted legacy hosts. Pioneer does not require any hardware support such as secure co-processors or CPUarchitecture extensions. We implement Pioneer on an Intel Pentium IV Xeon processor. Pioneer can be used as a basic building block to build security systems. We demonstrate this by building a kernel rootkit detector. Categories and Subject Descriptors: Software, Operating Systems, Security and Protection, Verification. General Terms: Security.
