Title: CARMA: A Hardware Tamper-Resistant Isolated Execution Environment on Commodity x86 Platforms

Speaker: Prof. Adrian Perrig (Carnegie Mellon University)

Date: May 1st, (Tue) 2:00pm~3:00pm

Location: 우정관 (Woojung Building), Room #201, Korea University

Much effort has been spent to reduce the software Trusted Computing Base
(TCB) of modern systems. However, the hardware TCB remains complex and
untrustworthy. Components such as memory, peripherals, and system buses
may become malicious via firmware compromise, a malicious manufacturer, a
malicious supply chain, or local physical tampering. We seek to reduce the
hardware TCB to a minimal set of hardware components that must be trusted.
We describe the design and implementation of an isolated execution
environment on commodity x86 platforms that only relies on the CPU, without
needing to trust the memory, buses, peripherals, or any other system


Adrian Perrig is a Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering,
Engineering and Public Policy, and Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon
University. Adrian serves as the technical director for Carnegie Mellon's
Cybersecurity Laboratory (CyLab). He earned his Ph.D. degree in Computer
Science from Carnegie Mellon University, and spent three years during his
Ph.D. degree at the University of California at Berkeley. He received his B.
Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of
Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). Adrian's research revolves around building
secure systems and includes network security, trustworthy computing and
security for social networks. More specifically, he is interested in trust
establishment, trustworthy code execution in the presence of malware, and
how to design secure next-generation networks. More information about his
research is available on
web page. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award in 2004, IBM faculty
fellowships in 2004 and 2005, the Sloan research fellowship in 2006, the
Security 7 award in the category of education by the Information Security
Magazine in 2009, and the Benjamin Richard Teare teaching award in 2011.
