Real-time Kernel Protection (RKP)

The security of the kernel is essential to the security of the whole system. An attack that compromises the kernel has the ability to arbitrarily access system sensitive data, hide malicious activities, escalate the privilege of malicious user processes, change the system behavior or simply take control of the system. As mentioned previously, Trusted Boot measurements can be used to determine what kernel was loaded and run when the device was started. However, this protection does not guarantee the integrity of the kernel after the system runs and starts to interact with potential attackers. Clever attackers can sometimes exploit an already booted and running kernel. In such cases, it is important to continuously monitor the kernel during the system runtime in order to detect and prevent modifications to the kernel code or critical data structures.
