Author: No Comments Share:

This week I presented at Black Hat USA. The talk is titled “Poacher turned gatekeeper: lessons learned from eight years of breaking hypervisors”. The main points were:

  • Describe the attack surface of Type 1 and Type 2 hypervisors
  • Show that despite not being 100% bulletproof, hypervisors are still the best usable way to isolate potentially malicious code
  • Describe a few generic methods to harden a hypervisor
  • Discuss four new VirtualBox vulnerabilities
  • Discuss DMA attacks against DeepSafe

The whitepaper is here, enjoy.
