    Memfini - A systemwide memory monitor interface for linux - Shubham Dubey, Rishal Dwivedi



    Title:
    Memfini - A systemwide memory monitor interface for linux

    Presenter:
    Shubham Dubey, Rishal Dwivedi

    Abstract:
    Surprisingly, memory related events logging has been ignored by monitoring tool’s authors since a long time. There are multiple event loggers present for Linux that are capable of monitoring processes, i/o operations, function calls or whole systemwide events. But something which lacks in most is global monitoring of memory related events like allocation, attachment to a shared memory, memory allocation in foreign process etc. This has many applications in security domain or even software engineering in general. The main area of focus or use case for Memfini is to assist Security professionals for carrying out memory specific Dynamic Malware Analysis, in order to help them in finding indicators for malicious activities without reversing the behavior. Below listed are few of the use cases (which we will also be demonstrating in the talk). • Process Injection • Fileless malware execution • Shellcode Execution • Malicious shared memory usage On the other hand, it can also be helpful for Software developers, who wish to have an eagle eye on the memory allocations • Finding Memory Leaks • Error detection for debugging purposes. The is possible as Memfini is capable of monitoring memory allocations on User space, Kernel space as well as some under looked allocations like PCI device mapping, DMA allocations etc. It provides a command line interface with multiple filters, allowing a user to interact with the logs generated & get the required data. Currently, the user will be able to filter the events by individual process, type of access etc.
