Raytheon Intelligence & Space, a Raytheon Technologies business, is launching a hardware emulation and software analysis tool called DejaVM™ that provides a virtual environment to evaluate and reduce cyber threats against mission-critical systems in a modern networked space. The tool supports popular architectures and operating systems including: x86, ARM, PPC, MIPS, Windows, Linux, and VxWorks.

In today’s networked environment, mission-critical systems are increasingly exposed to cyber threats. The challenge is how to test these systems to ensure they’re capable of combating modern cyberattacks.

DejaVM enables system-level cyber testing without requiring access to the limited number of highly specialized physical hardware assets. The tool creates an emulation environment that virtualizes complex systems to support automated cyber testing. The tool focuses on improving software development, testing and security via its advanced analysis features.

DejaVM provides an infrastructure that can be used to virtualize any system, supplying advanced debugging capabilities not possible on the actual platform. Any code within the system can be debugged, memory can be modified, and vulnerabilities can be detected wherever they occur.

“Our team of experts has worked tirelessly to launch DejaVM to enable customers to emulate critical network systems to identify and mitigate cyber vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by our adversaries,” said Teresa Shea, vice president of Cyber Offense and Defense Experts (CODEX) at RI&S. “Now more than ever, virtual cyber threat reduction environments are critical to protecting the systems our work and lives rely upon.”
