Lucent Sky AVM version 1912 MR

New features in 1912 MR

CLEAR Engine

CLEAR Engine is the central service responsible for the orchestration of different engines and services of Lucent Sky AVM. The new CLEAR Engine has been designed and optimized to work better with the new analysis and remediation engines, and enables significant performance improvements across the board.

Binary analysis

The third-generation binary analysis engine provides incremental improvements over the current engine, and scalability is a key focus. A new direct binary analysis mode allows pre-compiled binary files to be analyze along with their source code, without the need of building it within the scan process. Additionally, new memory management algorithms provide greatly improved analysis performance on systems with large amount of memory.

The new analysis engine has been in public preview since v1906. With the new CLEAR Engine, it is the default binary analysis engine starting with v1912. Additionally, it also received performance improvements on Java application analysis, and better detection for corrupted .NET binary files.
