Abstract

In this seminar, an Obfuscation Module is discussed. This module provides a means to perform computation on untrusted computing systems while maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of the information. Being able to do so not only enables assured processing, such as running a program with certain assurances that the algorithm will remain protected, but it can also increase the defensive posture of cyber systems. When an executable is requested by the operating system, the module will apply obfuscation techniques to repackage it. Once repackaged, it will send the new executable to the host system. In this way, the untrusted system will never have access to the original executable image but a convoluted equivalent of it, protecting the confidentiality of the image and the algorithm which it implements, since it is cost prohibitive to unscramble the available executable.
