Secure Loading of Dynamic Link Libraries* on Windows* OS
To improve security protections on Microsoft Windows* OS, Intel® Trace Collector provides the enhanced security options for the loading of Dynamic-Link Libraries*. You can enable the secure DLL loading mode, as well as define a set of directories in which the library will attempt to locate an external DLL.
The security options are placed in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intel\ITAC protected Windows* registry key. The location prevents the options from being changed with non-administrative privileges.
Select the secure DLL loading mode.
enable | yes | on | 1
|Enable the secure DLL loading mode|
disable | no | off | 0
|Disable the secure DLL loading mode. This is the default value|
Use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intel\ITAC registry key to define the SecureDynamicLibraryLoading registry entry. Set this entry to enable the secure DLL loading mode.
VT_MPI_DLL and VT_FMPI_DLL
Specify the Intel MPI Library to be used in the secure DLL loading mode.
|<library>||Specify the name of the library to be loaded|
In the secure DLL loading mode, the library changes the default-defined set of directories to locate DLLs. Therefore, the current working directory and the directories that are listed in the PATH environment variable may be ignored. To select a specific MPI library to be loaded, define the VT_MPI_DLL and VT_FMPI_DLL entries of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intel\ITAC registry key. Specify the full path to the MPI library.
Specify a set of directories to locate an external DLL.
|Specify paths to directories. The paths must be separated with a semicolon ;.|
Use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intel\ITAC registry key to define the SecurePath registry entry. Set this entry to specify a set of directories to locate loaded DLLs in the secure DLL loading mode. Use a safe set of directories instead of some publicly writable directories to avoid insecure library loading.
