Abstract
SDR (Software Defined Radio) systems will often be required to accept a software component that is untrusted, e.g. from a military coalition partner. The proposed research will perform not only memory address space isolation, but other high level security monitoring services, for these untrusted components using lightweight application-level virtualization technology known as SDT (Software Dynamic Translation). Careful measurements will explore the trade-off of performance and security and guide the memory address space isolation algorithm.
