Polymorphing for Linux

Stop Attacks Before They Start

Polymorphing provides Linux security for known and unknown vulnerabilities -- patched or unpatched.

The ultimate protection for your Linux OS

Among common vulnerabilities and exploits (CVEs), memory-exploiting zero-day attacks are the most difficult to defend against and make up 80% of all CVEs. This is the kind that gave us the Spectre vulnerability and breached Equifax.

Polymorphing your Linux OS immediately protects against 100% of all memory-based vulnerabilities, removing the race to patch and stopping attacks before they start.

Supports all major versions of Linux, including Red Hat, Alpine, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, SUSE* and Debian.

*Will be available 2020.

How does polymorphing work?

If humans were identical clones like operating systems are today, then any virus could have caused our extinction. Polymorphing immunizes your entire software stack through continuous binary diversity.

Memory-based attacks take aim at specific function locations, CPU registers and other targets. Polymorphing randomly changes all of these targeting details at the binary level. Polymorphing takes source code and runs it through a polymorphic compiler, changing register usage, function locations, import tables and other targets. This produces individually unique binaries that are semantically equivalent to the source. Polymorphing applies the compiler to the totality of the Linux stack.

You receive the unique binaries through a standard package repository for your favorite version of Linux. Then simply add Polyverse to the front of your mirror list, and you're protected.

  • No changes to the source code.
  • No changes to functionality.
  • No changes to performance.
  • No changes to developer behavior.
  • No changes to user operations.

Polymorphing stops zero-day memory exploits without altering function, performance or operations of your OS.

Five minutes to install

Deployment is simple, taking less than 5 minutes.

Simply add Polyverse to the front of your mirror list, and you're protected.
