Secure Execution Environment: Design Principles and Common Pitfalls

Speaker:  Yan Solihin – Orlando, FL, United States
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


There is an increasing demand for the processor architecture to provide secure execution environment in various compute platforms including the cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Current secure execution environment suffers from two serious drawbacks. First, the threat model is incomplete, as evident in recent side channel attacks, leaving the system vulnerable to attacks. Furthermore, despite intensive research, providing secure execution environment for current threats is expensive, let alone for protecting against new threats. In this talk, I will discuss performance overheads of providing secure execution environment, and argue that it is one of the most important emerging hot workloads.
