INTEL VT-X ON QEMU
Devnani, Lavin R.
Reliability and Security Monitoring
Over the past decade, virtualization technologies have evolved from research and educational tools to scalable IT solutions deployed across
However, current reliability and security development tools such as
QEMU lack support for analyzing hardware extensions provided by Intel's
virtualization technology (VT-x). This project aims to extend QEMU
support for hardware assisted virtualization by adding virtualization related control structures to QEMU's emulated processor, supporting
translation of the
Intel VT-x instruction set and developing APIs for use with future projects.
Having Intel VT-x on QEMU contributes to the overall goal of
performing dynamic analysis of HAV, and supports future projects such
as Taint Analysis, Symbolic Execution and prototyping new hypervisors/ hypervisor monitoring tools.
