[PAST EVENT] Secure High-Performance Computer Architectures
Speaker: Dmitry Ponomarev, Binghamton University
Title: “Secure High-Performance Computer Architectures”
Abstract: Modern computer systems are under constant threat of attacks by sophisticated adversaries. In this talk, we will demonstrate that computer architecture and hardware design can play an important role in securing computer systems without compromising performance or significantly increasing design complexity. We will describe several attack vectors and hardware-supported solutions to these attacks. Specifically, we will review our recent work on dynamic information flow tracking, code-reuse attacks, malware detection and side-channel attacks, and demonstrate how these pieces fit together to build a secure system.
