FirePatch: Secure and Time-Critical Dissemination of Patches Abstract

By Dag Johansen

Abstract

Because software security patches relay information about vulnerabilities, they can be reverse engineered into exploits. Tools for doing this already exist. As a result, there is a race between hackers and end-users to first obtain patches. In this paper we present and evaluate FirePatch, an intrusion-tolerant dissemination mechanism that combines encryption, replication, and sandboxing such that end-users are able to win the security patch race.
