Application whitelisting is a technology that allows only applications that are explicitly listed in a whitelist to be executed on a computer system. We have implemented two versions of application whitelisting, one requiring system call interception and kernel modification, and the other requiring only SMACK rule configuration and user-level programming. In this talk, we will detail the SMACK-based application whitelisting implementation, and compare these two implementations in terms of their functionalities, system stability, development efforts, and run-time performance overheads.
