Two of our research projects have attracted media attention recently. The Daily Mail reports on our CacheBleed attack. CacheBleed monitors minute changes in the time it takes a computer to execute a sequence of operations and use it to steal information on the internal working of cryptographic algorithms. While the possibility of such an attack […]

Scott Bourne’s PhD thesis has passed the examination successfully. Scott has been supervised by Prof. Michael Sheng and Dr. Claudia Szabo. Congratulations!
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 […]
As part of our ongoing collaboration with the Laboratory for Experimental Information Security (LEISec), our intern, Tom Allan, was invited to an extended visit To Israel. Tom will spend six weeks in the Tel-Aviv University, where he will work on microarchitectural side-channel attacks.
