A working group operating under the umbrella of IEEE has finalized its taggant system, the purpose and the design of which were described at VB2011. The main goal of the taggant system is to block the uncontrolled use of packers to obfuscate malware.
Now the taggant software library has been implemented and we have the infrastructure to support the operation of the system (PKI, revokation, etc.). We will also describe the history of the system development.
We will describe the APIs and demonstrate the following:
We will also discuss the steps in adoption of the system and all benefits for the security community and computer users (some of which are not immediately obvious).
