Software vulnerabilities become one of the top threats to world security in the coming decade. The most of such vulnerabilities are based on memory leaks and memory corruption. Many memory access monitoring tools exist, but most of them suffer from high overhead what makes it impossible to use such tools in the “real world” software projects. The goal of this research is to develop and investigate a memory access monitoring tool that detects memory leaks and corruption using tagged memory without reduce of an original application performance.
