For the key security problem in the cryptographic software,the method of key security detection based on dynamic binary instrumentation was proposed.Aimed at CryptoAPI cryptographic software,the method firstly pointed out the potential key security vulnerabilities by analyzing the key applying patterns of CryptoAPI.Then it recorded cryptographic data information during the execution of the program dynamically using Pin platform.On this basis,a relevance vulnerability detection algorithm was designed to detect the key security.Test result indicated that it can effectively detect the two kinds of key security vulnerabilities.

Key words: key security detection, dynamic binary instrumentation, Pin platform, CryptoAPI cryptographic software
