CASA-Distinguished Lecture mit Daniel Gruss

In Zusammenhang mit unserem DFG-Exzellenzcluster "CASA - Cyber Security in the Age of Large-Scale Adversaries" freuen wir uns, den Termin für die nächsten CASA-Distinguished Lectures bekannt zu geben. In diesem Format halten ausgewählte internationale und nationale Wissenschaftler/innen Gast-Vorträge am HGI.

Am 11. Juli von 12.00-13.00 Uhr kommt Daniel Gruss von der TU Graz, ans HGI. Er hält in ID 04/445 einen Vortrag zum Thema „Transient Execution Attacks“.

Abstract: In this talk we will deepen our understanding of transient execution attacks and defenses. We will discuss the differences between all the Spectre variants in terms of microarchitectural (prediction) elements, the attacker model, and the attack strategy. We will discuss blank spots that we should look at in the future. With this knowledge we are prepared to discuss which defenses against transient execution attacks are effective. We will see that there are good defenses, but most are neither effective nor efficient. Finally we will discuss open problems for defenses.
