Polite notice: I’ve moved, I’m on @cynicalsecurity now.
I just noticed some people are still answering here and I have not seen your messages, sorry :(
And yes, I did set the forward…
I have moved my main account to @cynicalsecurity should you wish to follow me there.
I have already followed, at least I hope, all those I was previously following.
For those desiring to take a trip down Folly Lane here's the (marketing) PDF for DIDO (DIrect Data iO, I think):
Now I am even more terrified of Intel processors than I already was.
It is obviously a performance trick taking DMA over PCI to the next level (most likely for Intel NICs which are already integrated on SOCs) but… my God that takes courage to deploy in any secure network design.
Does anyone have experience with the PINE64 SBCs?
They seem to offer Gigabit Ethernet compared to the Raspberry Pi3 or is this purely theoretical? I also note FreeBSD support in 12.0-CURRENT.
The patch applied fine in #HardenedBSD 12-CURRENT. I'm compiling world + kernel with the patch to test it out on my laptop.
Fun article about the author discovering a speculative execution bug on the Xbox360.
Speaking of trying out all the emulators, I'm a bit of a fan of those which run in the browser. Full-screen the browser and you get the feeling of just having the machine to yourself. There's a hundred or so catalogued here, from the usual 8bit suspects, to early Unix capable machines, even earlier machines, 16 bit machines - you name it!
Should we stop and realise that we need data-driven security we would be forced to acknowledge the need for a major redesign.
Personally I’m quite fond of tagged designs but I am also looking elsewhere but always in the direction of securing data throughout the system and, possibly, the network.
