HyperPass: Secure Password Input Platform

Michael Kiperberg, Nezer Zaidenberg

Abstract

Confidential information, like passwords and credit card numbers, travel from the user’s local machine to a remote server via secure communication protocols. Whereas remote servers are serviced by security specialists, local machines are more vulnerable to memory attacks and keyloggers. To counter these attacks we propose a secure password input platform, called HyperPass, which is based on a thin hypervisor. The thin hypervisor acts as an isolated and secure environment for entering and encrypting user’s confidential information. HyperPass uses the keyboard’s scroll lock LED as a security indicator. Our evaluation shows that the performance overhead of HyperPass is insignificant (≈ 2.79%).
