Jiang to Collaborate on OpenVMI Research

Dr. Xuxian Jiang, assistant professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $225,000 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support his collaborative research proposal titled “OpenVMI:  A Software Infrastructure for Virtual Machine Introspection.”

The award will run from September 1, 2009 to August 31, 2012.

Jiang will collaborate on the research with Dr. Xu Dongyan at Purdue University.

Abstract - Research in virtualization technologies has gained significant momentum in recent years. One of the basic yet powerful enabling functions in many virtualization research efforts is virtual machine introspection or VMI: Observing a VM's states and events from outside the VM. The goal of this project is to develop OpenVMI: a software-based research infrastructure for VMI, which is expected to enable new research and education opportunities, including, but not limited to, safe malware experiments, intelligent virtual infrastructure management etc.
