HPCA 2016: CATalyst: Defeating Last-Level Cache Side Channel Attacks in Cloud Computing

Working with colleagues from Princeton University, NICTA and Intel we show how to use the Intel Cache Allocation Technology (CAT) to provide protection from cache-based side-channel attacks. CAT is a hardware cache-partitioning mechanism for enforcing quality of service with respect to cache occupancy. However due to the small number of partitions it cannot be used […]

Research Grant: Assessment and OS-Level Mitigation of Timing Channels. Y.Yarom and K. Falkner, NICTA CRP Research Agreement ($132,378) (2015-2016)

Our collaboration with NICTA’s Software Systems Research Group (UNSW) continues with an extension of our CRP Research Agreement in the area of Security and Virtualisation. Dr Yuval Yarom leads this latest grant collaboration, which will survey micro-architectural time-based covert channels and side channels on modern architectures. It will survey existing exploits and mitigation strategies, and attempt […]
