Abstract : The Defending Against Hostile Operating Systems research project focused on building systems that will remain secure even when the operating system is compromised or hostile. It was a collaborative effort among researchers from Harvard, Stony Brook, U.C. Berkeley, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Virginia. The project studied this problem from a number of angles, including operating system design, hypervisor enforcement, static analysis, and hardware design, and on a number of platforms, including desktop systems, servers, and mobile systems. The team developed numerous mechanisms and techniques for addressing this problem.
