Title: Enhancing software security through compartmentalization and isolation
Memory vulnerabilities serve as a crucial avenue for attackers to launch attacks against software systems. Through compartmentalization and isolation, it's possible to effectively prevent attackers from initiating attacks by manipulating critical data. This report will introduce the principles of inner privilege isolation, defense methods, and some research progress.
