Abstract
The victor in a conflict is often the party that can gain the "upper hand". In the battle between software protection and reverse engineering, however, the victor is the party that gains the "lower hand". We propose a novel software protection system based on hypervisors that gives the advantage to the defended application by lowering it below the operating system, effectively making the application inaccessible to attackers.
