  1. 1. Examining the Impact of Microarchitectural Attacks on Microkernels : a study of Meltdown and Spectre

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap; Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Gunnar Grimsdal; Patrik Lundgren; [2019]
    Keywords : Genode; Meltdown; Spectre; Nova; Okl4; microarchitectural attacks; microkernel;

    Abstract : Most of today's widely used operating systems are based on a monolithic design and have a very large code size which complicates verification of security-critical applications. One approach to solving this problem is to use a microkernel, i.e., a small kernel which only implements the bare necessities. READ MORE

  2. 2. The modernization of a DOS-basedtime critical solar cell LBICmeasurement system.

    University essay from Karlstads universitet

    Author : Gunnar Hjern; [2019]
    Keywords : Pascal programming language; Linux; operating system; real-time; PREEMPT_RT patch; Free Pascal compiler; Lazarus; multi-threading; computer controlled measurements; false color map; refactoring; software modernization; adaptation layer; MS-DOS; GPIB; IEEE-488; silicon solar cell; quantum efficiency; LBIC; electron recombination; serial communication; micro-controller; ISR; incremental encoder; lock-in amplifier; trans-impedance amplifier; triggered measurement;

    Abstract : LBIC is a technique for scanning the local quantum efficiency of solar cells. This kind of measurements needs a highly specialized, and time critical controlling software. In 1996 the client, professor Markus Rinio, constructed an LBIC system, and wrote the controlling software as a Turbo-Pascal 7.0 application, running under the MS-DOS 6. READ MORE

  3. 3. Data Race Detection for Parallel Programs Using a Virtual Platform

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Daniel Haverås; [2018]
    Keywords : Concurrency; multiprocessing; data race detection; virtual platforms; dynamic analysis; Samtidighet i programvara; multiprocessing; detektion av datakapplöpning; virtuella platformar; dynamisk analys;

    Abstract : Data races are highly destructive bugs found in concurrent programs. Because of unordered thread interleavings, data races can randomly appear and disappear during the debugging process which makes them difficult to find and reproduce. READ MORE

  4. 4. Application security for embedded systems

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Fredrik Hagfjäll; Mikael Bäckman; [2017]
    Keywords : linux; security; isolation; embedded systems; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : With the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) accessories such as network attached cameras, light bulbs and thermostats are all constantly connected to the Internet and security concerns must be taken seriously. If a bug exists in an application it could be hacked by a malicious adversary that then could harm the underlying system, leak information or attack other devices or networks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Extended Bluetooth Profiles on CCpilot displays

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Signaler och System

    Author : Alexander Johnson; [2017]
