11.00 - 12.00 Keynote: Microarchitectural Attacks in the Cloud. By Clémentine Maurice, Secure Systems Group, Graz University of Technology, Austria

Abstract: Micro-architectural attacks take advantage of shared resources such as branch prediction units, CPU caches and DRAM. In most environments today, these hardware components are shared between several processes: this is the case in personal computers, smartphones, and cloud environments. Yet, the state of these components, whether observed by timing measurements or tools like hardware performance counters, can reveal secrets from one process to the other, including across software isolation boundaries such as virtualization. In this presentation, we will cover different micro-architectural attacks and their requirements to operate in virtual environments such as cloud environments. We will illustrate scenarios of attacks, such as cryptographic key recovery or cross-VM covert channels. We will finally give research directions in terms of countermeasures.

Bio: Clémentine Maurice is now working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Secure Systems group at the Graz University of Technology, in Austria. Previously, she obtained her PhD from Telecom ParisTech in 2015 while working at Technicolor in Rennes, jointly with the S3 group of Eurecom in Sophia Antipolis. Her main research interests are micro-architectural attacks such as covert channels, side-channel attacks, and fault attacks, as well as reverse-engineering processor parts.
