Introspective Virtualization (IntroVirt®)


IntroVirt is a customized Xen and KVM hypervisor and library that provides a robust virtual machine (VM) introspection application programming interface (API).

VM introspection is the process of looking at the memory contents of a VM during runtime. By applying knowledge of the guest operating system, introspection can be used for a variety of applications, including reverse engineering, debugging software and securing guest VMs by limiting access to files or limiting an executing application’s functionality.

Key Insights:

  • Supports 32 and 64-bit Windows guests, with Linux guest support under development
  • Provides an API for event-based introspection
    so developers can hook events like system calls, context switches and software breakpoints
  • Is capable of parsing operating system specific context from memory/registers
