AbstractIn this proposal we outline a binary-level compilation technology and related toolkit to transform an embedded system's firmware to contain automated intrinsic support for both the detection of exploits as well as the patching of the firmware exploited. The toolkit called REDA (Resilience in Embedded devices through Dynamic Allocation) relies on post-compilation analyses and transformations designed to detect, respond to, and heal from an attack.
