Antivirus is a fundamental presence in every computer infrastructure nowadays. The exponential growth of Internet usage with increasing higher bandwidth led to situations where virus (as well as worms and other type of malicious content) had constant outbreaks with impressive amounts of infected computers across the entire world. Email has been the preferred choice for several of these malicious content outbreaks. This paper describes the design, implementation, and evaluation of RAVE, a Replicated AntiVirus Engine for email infrastructures. Based on fault/intrusion tolerance concepts, this system allows to increase the detection capability of anti-malware solutions for email infrastructures by having different engines working in parallel, allowing at the same time arbitrary faults in a predefined number of replicas. © 2010 IEEE.
