    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Matteo Piano; [2017]
    Keywords : software security operating system linux binary instrumentation return oriented programming;

    Abstract : Despite the increasing attention to the topic of computer security, the amount of vulnerable software services is still high. The exploitation of a common vulnerability like memory management bugs brought to the development of an attack known as Return Oriented Programming (ROP). READ MORE

  3. 3. An Evaluation of Decoupled Access Execute on ARMv8

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Author : Georgios Petrousis; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Energy saving techniques on the hardware level are not always capable of adapting to the applications. Thus energy saving techniques at software level are needed to overcome the limitations of the hardware. Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling (DVFS)is one of the most widely used techniques to scale down the voltage and frequency atruntime as needed. READ MORE

  4. 4. scmt - SuperK Cluster Management Toolkit Plug-and-play management for single-board computer clusters

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Keywords : cluster computing; single-board computer; cluster management; Odroid; ARM;

    Abstract : Computer clusters have become increasingly important in elds such as high-performance computing and database management due to their scalability and lower economic cost compared with traditional supercomputers. However, computer clusters consisting of x86-based servers are expensive, highly power-consuming, and occupy signi cant space. READ MORE

  5. 5. Generic Hardware Description for Embedded Platforms

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för informations- och kommunikationsteknik (ICT)

    Author : Clément Parisot; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : On the area of microcontrollers, a firmware is traditionally built for a very specific hardware configuration. Without special design, there is little chance that the same firmware will run on several hardware platforms with a different sets of peripherals. But running the same firmware on different hardware configurations could have some benefits. READ MORE
