Enhanced Mitigation Experience #Toolkit #EMET Version 4.0 #msteched #TEE13   3 comments





The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is designed to help prevent hackers from gaining access to your system.
Software vulnerabilities and exploits have become an everyday part of life. Virtually every product has to deal with them and consequently, users are faced with a stream of security updates. For users who get attacked before the latest updates have been applied or who get attacked before an update is even available, the results can be devastating: malware, loss of PII, etc.
Security mitigation technologies are designed to make it more difficult for an attacker to exploit vulnerabilities in a given piece of software. EMET allows users to manage these technologies on their system and provides several unique benefits

EMET is designed to work with any software, whether it is developed by Microsoft or by other vendors. However, you should be aware that some software may be incompatible with EMET. Some applications rely on exactly the behavior that the mitigations block. It is important to use test scenarios on all target computers before you deploy EMET in a production environment.

After you install EMET, you must configure EMET to provide protection for a piece of software. This requires you to provide the name and location of the executable file that you want to protect. To do this, use one of the following methods:

  • Work with the Application Configuration feature of the graphical application
  • Use the command prompt utility

If you want to leverage the Certificate Trust feature, you have to provide the list of the websites that you want to protect and certificate pinning rules that apply to those websites. To do this, you have to work with the Certificate Trust Configuration feature of the graphical application.

Alternatively, you can use the new Configuration Wizard that allows you to automatically configure EMET with the recommended settings.
