The Vrije University of Amsterdam, UNICORE members, will participate at the 43rd IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy, held on May 23-25. The event will be in San Francisco, at the Hyatt Regency & online.
Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for presenting developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field.
The paper “Blacksmith: Compromising Target Row Refresh by Rowhammering in the Frequency Domain”, from the authors Patrick Jattke, Victor van der Veen, Pietro Frigo, Stijn Gunter and Kaveh Razavi, will be presented on May 23 at 3:50 pm (PDT). This paper describes a new kind of attack against certain DDR4 Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) modules which were previously thought to be immune to RowHammer-style attacks.
On the other hand, the paper “Mitigating Information Leakage Vulnerabilities with Type-based Data Isolation”, from the authors Alyssa Milburn, Erik van der Kouwe and Cristiano Giuffrida, will be presented on May 24 at 10:40 am (PDT). This paper proposes Type-based Data Isolation (TDI), a new practical design point in the data isolation space to mitigate info leaks. TDI isolates memory objects of different colors in separate memory arenas and uses efficient compiler instrumentation to constrain loads to the arena of the intended color by construction.
