This presentation will detail a practical approach to memory introspection of virtual machines running on the Xen hypervisor with no in-guest footprint. The functionality makes use of the mem-event API with a number of improvements which enable the proper tracking of guest OS activity. The technology created on top of this Xen API opens the door for several immediate applications, including: rootkit detection and prevention, detection and action on several categories of malware, and event source information for low-level post-event forensics and correlation based on real event data during events.
