To trace the provenance of cyber attacks, audit log analysis faces the challenge of input-output dependence explosion. We develop a binary analysis/hardening technique that partitions the execution of an event-driven process into multiple “units” so that logging can be performed with units — not processes — as subjects. Our evaluation shows significant improvement in attack provenance accuracy with low overhead.
