Hardware support for code integrity in embedded processors
Computer security becomes increasingly important with continual growth of the number of interconnected computing platforms. Moreover, as capabilities of embedded processors increase, the applications running on these systems also grow in size and complexity, and so does the number of security vulnerabilities. Attacks that impair code integrity by injecting and executing malicious code are one of the major security issues. This problem can be addressed at different levels, from more secure software and operating systems, down to solutions that require hardware support. Most of the existing techniques tackle the problem of security flaws at the software level, but this approach lacks generality and often induces prohibitive overhead in performance and cost, or generates a significant number of false alarms. On the other hand, a further increase in the number of transistors on a single chip enables integrated hardware support for functions that formerly were restricted to the software do...
