IOSEC: Protection and Memory Safety for Input/Output Security

Funder: EPSRC under the RISE initiative

Investigators: Theo Markettos, Simon Moore, Robert Watson

Starting mid 2018, we are beginning to investigate memory safety against potentially malicious input/output (I/O) devices. The is motivated by the observation that current I/O memory management units (IOMMUs) only provide good isolation if I/O devices are trustworthy, which they are clearly not.
