There are applications that block of many software packages to secure themselves.(sniffers , monitoring , and more ...)

For example, the software examines parts of Windows including (list of installed software, running software, driver directory, registery, etc.).

The question is, can we restrict software access to checking the parts I mentioned above?

  • Hi and welcome to RE.SE. So you want to restrict an application running with which privileges from being able to glean all that information? Perhaps setting Deny ACEs would be an option, as they take precedence over Allow ones, but none of this would be particularly granular. Essentially what you seem to be asking would require a sort of sandbox approach in which the sandboxed entity only gets a mock view of the real system. But that's a herculean task. There are literally big corporations earning their buck by providing such solutions as a service (and sizable teams working on them). – 0xC0000022L Dec 2 at 15:16
