kGuard: Lightweight Kernel Protection
Vasileios Kemerlis, Georgios Portokalidis, Elias Athanasopoulos, and Angelos D. Keromytis
Kernel exploits have become increasingly popular over the past several years. We have developed kGuard, a cross-platform system that defends the operating system (OS) against a widespread class of kernel attacks. We describe how these attacks work and how kGuard protects the kernel with only a small decrease in performance.
