Formally Modeling A Security Monitor For Virtual Machine-Based Confidential Computing Systems (IBM)

A technical paper titled “Towards a Formally Verified Security Monitor for VM-based Confidential Computing” was published by researchers at IBM Research and IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. Abstract: "Confidential computing is a key technology for isolating high-assurance applications from the large amounts of untrusted code typical in modern systems. Existing confidential computing syste... » read more

Neon Intrinsics In Rust

At the end of 2021, the Neon intrinsics in Rust were completed and the community proposed stabilizing them (not requiring a nightly compiler). The implementation of the Neon intrinsics was a large effort mostly undertaken by the Rust community so Arm would like to thank everyone involved in that. At the time of writing, all the Neon intrinsics that are Armv8.0-A are implemented and are stabi... » read more

Hardware Attack Surface Widening

An expanding attack surface in hardware, coupled with increasing complexity inside and outside of chips, is making it far more difficult to secure systems against a variety of new and existing types of attacks. Security experts have been warning about the growing threat for some time, but it is being made worse by the need to gather data from more places and to process it with AI/ML/DL. So e... » read more
