Anti-Malware active protection on Arm64 Systems

Actively fighting malware injection using Call Flow Integrity (CFI).

While most IT infrastructures face ransomware and cyberattacks, cybersecurity tools do their best to detect and eradicate malware. One loophole remains, however. When malware hits a system, the microprocessor simply executes it, allowing it to infect the system.

At SiPearl, we care about actively contributing to anti-malware protection.

Following a careful analysis of malware injection techniques, this white paper describes how the CFI techniques can prevent such intrusions. The Arm64 CPU cores at the heart of SiPearl microprocessors offer unique CFI capabilities which build a shield against the most dangerous forms of malware injection. This white paper describes them in detail.
