Hardware Based Security Enhanced Direct Memory Access

Abstract : This paper presents an approach to prevent memory attacks enabled by DMA. DMA is a technique that is frequently used to release processors from simple memory transfers. DMA transfers are usually performed during idle times of the bus. A disadvantage of DMA transfers is that they are primarily unsupervised by anti malware agents. After the completion of a DMA activity the transfered data can be scanned for malicious codes. At this time the malicious structures are already in the memory and processor time is necessary to perform a malware scan. The approach presented in this paper enhances the DMA by a watchdog mechanisms that scans the data passing by and interrupts the processor after the detection of a malicious data or instruction sequence. Configurable hardware based on FPGAs is used to overcome the problem of frequently changing malware and malware signatures.
