The taint rabbit: optimizing generic taint analysis with dynamic fast path generation

Alternative title:
Conference paper
Abstract:

Generic taint analysis is a pivotal technique in software security. However, it suffers from staggeringly high overhead. In this paper, we explore the hypothesis whether just-in-time (JIT) generation of fast paths for tracking taint can enhance the performance. To this end, we present the Taint Rabbit, which supports highly customizable user-defined taint policies and combines a JIT with fast context switching. Our experimental results suggest that this combination outperforms notable existin...
