Spectre Attacks: Exploiting Speculative Execution

The recently-disclosed Spectre vulnerability broadly affects modern high-speed microprocessors. Paul Kocher, who co-discovered and named the attack, will explore how Spectre works, its short- and long-term security implications, the trade-offs and limitations of available mitigation options, and lessons learned from its discovery and embargo process.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn how Spectre attacks work.
2: Understand Spectre’s impact on real-world systems and technology roadmaps.
3: Explore embargo and disclosure challenges for hardware vulnerabilities.
