  • Emulates & sandbox machine code in an isolated environment
  • Supports cross architecture and platform debugging capabalities
  • Provides high level API to setup & configure the sandbox
  • Fine-grain instrumentation: allows hooks at various levels (instruction/basic-block/memory-access/exception/syscall/IO/etc)
  • Allows dynamic hotpatch on-the-fly running code, including the loaded library
