EXploit And Malware INcubator (EXAMIN)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
To mitigate the problem of obtaining potentially insecure software, ATC-NY, Architecture Technology Corporation, and Lockheed Martin are creating the EXploit And Malware INcubator (EXAMIN), a product designed to assist in the safe triggering and detection of malicious code in binaries. EXAMIN will consist of two main components: (1) an isolated sandbox built using virtual machines (VMs) that is capable of realistically simulating deployment environments, and (2) an instrumentation system that monitors an executable's activity inside the sandbox and logs its resource usage. EXAMIN will be a flexible and extensible platform capable of simulating a variety of environments and supporting a spectrum of static and dynamic analysis tools. A primary innovation of EXAMIN will be the incorporation of VM introspection as a security device: a method of monitoring activity inside of a virtual machine that does not rely on the integrity of the guest operating system within that VM.
