An In-memory Embedding of CPython with SCYTHE

In this blog we discuss a project we are open sourcing: An In-memory Embedding of CPython. We provide a brief overview of this research and also share our results with the community. A paper [1] on this research was accepted in the USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies (WOOT 2021), which was co-located with IEEE Security and Privacy Workshops this year.
