119 - Defending DRAM for data safety and security in the cloud

DRAM, the most widely used volatile computer memory, is vulnerable to a malicious attack called Rowhammer that causes data loss and security exploits across various devices. Despite efforts to mitigate the issue, the vulnerability remains a major concern in the tech industry. In this podcast episode, Dr. Stefan Saroiu, a Senior Principal Researcher in MSR’s Mobility and Networking group, explains the challenges in defending DRAM against Rowhammer attacks and discusses a potential solution. His approach involves implementing bespoke extensibility mechanisms for DRAM that may finally eliminate the Rowhammer exploit and improve data safety and security within cloud computing and other devices.

To learn more about the details of this innovative solution and its implications for the tech industry's security landscape, listen to the full podcast episode.
