Abstract Most of the computer having Von Neumann architecture now a day’s facing the risk of attack of modifying kernel code. It is due to same address space of kernel code as well as data. In this paper, we discuss the methods to protect kernel code as well as data. The main theme behind this paper is how to make secure kernel code.
