Summary: 
We propose a new signature-based, on-demand anti-virus solution using in-storage processing (ISP) to inspect the inside of a storage device. In-storage anti-virus systems are able to isolate malicious effects from main computing platforms, and they reduce the system overhead for virus detection. We implement our in-storage anti-virus platform using cost-effective, open-source hardware, and we verify that is practically applicable to storage devices.
