Dr. Radu Teodorescu, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Ohio State University
This webinar introduces the newly discovered transient execution attacks that exploit various forms of speculation employed in modern processors. We discuss the architectural design features that have enabled these attacks, outline some of the software patches that have been deployed as mitigations, review their impact on system performance, and we present architectural design changes aimed at preventing.
