Conference Paper
The advent of multi-core processors, particularly with projections that numbers of cores will continue to increase, has focused attention on parallel programming. It is widely recognized that current programming techniques, including those that are used for scientific parallel programming, will not allow the easy formulation of general purpose appl...
Article
Optimistic concurrency provided by Transactional Memory (TM) makes it a good candidate for maintaining synchronization in future multi-core processors. Speculative execution and bulk level conflict detection enable TM to provide synchronization at fine grain without the complexity of managing fine grain locks. Early hardware TM systems proposed to...
Conference Paper
Side channel attacks (SCA) pose a serious threat to cryptographic modules. These modules should be evaluated for their resistivity against SCA. This paper surveys availability of such vulnerabilities.
Article
Full-text available
The main focus of modern cryptanalysis is on break-ing the implementation of cryptographic algorithms as opposed to traditional attacks which primarily target on mathematically breaking the algorithms. For over the last decade these new trend of attacks, Side Channel Attacks (SCAs), are becoming increasingly popular and pose a serious threat to cry...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the rapid growth in the area of Transactional Mem-ory (TM), there is a lack of standardisation of certain fea-tures. The behaviour of a transactional abort is one such fea-ture. All hardware TM and most software TM designs treat abort as a way of restarting the current transaction. How-ever an alternative representation for the same functio...
