How Does It Work?

If humans were identical clones like software is today, then any virus could have caused our extinction. Polymorphic Linux® immunizes your entire software stack through continuous binary diversity.

The Technology

Memory-based attacks take aim at specific function locations, CPU registers, and other targets. Polyverse randomly changes all of these targeting details at the binary level. We take source code and run it through a polymorphic compiler, changing register usage, function locations, import tables, and so on to produce individually unique binaries that are semantically equivalent.

We then take the compiler and apply it to the totality of the Linux stack. These binaries are delivered through a standard package repository for your favorite version of Linux. Simply add Polyverse to the front of your mirror list, and then you're protected.

Polymorphic Linux Stops Attacks, Rather Than Just Alerting When One Occurs

Access a uniquely randomized set of binaries for the full Linux stack. Deployment is simple, taking less than 5 minutes.

Eliminate Zero-Days

Many zero-day attacks exploit memory vulnerabilities. Of the 7,217 CVEs in 2017 of high or medium severity, a stunning 80% involved memory exploitation. Polymorphic Linux is immune to these types of attacks. Use our free Entropy Visualizer to see this in action.

Eliminate Code Injection with Polyscripting

Polyscripting changes the grammar of a programming language by scrambling the keywords used during lexical analysis.

Moving Target Defense

Reduce attackers’ windows of opportunity by increasing their uncertainty. By harnessing Moving-Target Defense (MTD), Polyverse creates strategic entropy in software systems.
