The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is a utility designed to help IT Professionals and users block attackers from gaining access to their systems through common attacks. EMET enables users to manage security mitigation technologies that help make it more difficult for attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in a given piece of software.
The latest release, EMET 4.1, is available for download. The toolkit includes several mitigation technologies aimed at disrupting many of the current exploit techniques. The mitigations are also designed so that they can be easily updated as attackers start using new exploit techniques. The toolkit also provides a configurable SSL/TLS certificate pinning feature, called Certificate Trust, aimed at detecting Man in the Middle attacks leveraging the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
