In-Kernel Control-Flow Integrity on Commodity OSes using ARM Pointer Authentication
We've confirmed this artifact on Ubuntu 18.04/20.04 host machines, not virtual guest machines.
NOTE: We also tried our artifact on virtual guest Ubuntu but found some can go wrong.
So we recommend running this on host machines if possible.
For ubuntu 18.04,
For ubuntu 20.04,
Build modified GCC 7.3, GCC plugin for instrumentation, LLVM plugin for context analyzer
After build, please set up
gclang according with
The all functions making up PAL are illustrated in Figure2 (i.e., Section4 Design) in our paper.
To evaluate all functional aspects in Figure2, see and follow instructions in full-workflow/README.md.
See 'Reproducing results of Table2 and Table3 in the paper' in precision/README.md.
See 'Confirmed cases' in static-validator/README.md.
Please try it on host machine rather than virtual guest machine if possible.
We've not confirmed it on between mac mini and VM.
We're not sure if you would be able to have a physical access to M1 mac mini and go successful with macOS configuration.
Any other apple silicon built on top of M1 chip would probably work with the above guide. But we have confirmed our evaluation only on Mac mini. If something goes wrong or you do not want to try this on your apple machine, let us know.
We can prepare a QEMU-based environment to help you run those benchmarks. (but, it won't be able to reproduce numbers in paper)
