    Abstract:

    In the battle for on-line information both attackers and defenders of computer systems try to gain complete control over the system. To maximize their control, they have migrated to low-level, operating system code. In this conditions we present the idea of using a virtual machine to share services and information over the Internet. In case of an attack the virtual machine resources will be affected while the real machine resources will be safe.
