IChannels: Exploiting Current Management Mechanisms to Create Covert Channels in Modern Processors


Find technical paper link here. Abstract: "To operate efficiently across a wide range of workloads with varying power requirements, a modern processor applies different current management mechanisms, which briefly throttle instruction execution while they adjust voltage and frequency to accommodate for power-hungry instructions (PHIs) in the instruction stream. Doing so 1) reduces the pow... » read more
