Architecting Secure-By-Design ReRAM-based Memories
Emerging Resistive Random-Access Memory (ReRAM) may replace flash-based Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) technology in the future. Unfortunately, ReRAM technology may introduce new security vulnerabilities. This proposal will investigate the security implications of ReRAM-based NVMs in computing systems and how to structure secure-by-design ReRAM-based memories.
This project will investigate the security implications of ReRAM, and develop countermeasures against ReRAM side-channel information leakage. The project has three thrusts. The first thrust aims to understand the potential information leakage in such emerging technologies. The second thrust will focus on innovating architectural support to eliminate potential side-channel information leakage. The third thrust will concentrate on system software-level solutions.
