Minimal TCB Code Execution
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Andrew Lewis.
We present Flicker, an architecture that allows code to execute in complete isolation from other software while trusting only a tiny software base that is orders of magnitude smaller than even minimalist virtual machine monitors. Flicker can also provide fine-grained attestation of the code executed (as well as its inputs and outputs) to a remote party. Our technique enables more meaningful attestation than previous proposals, since only measurements of the security-sensitive portions of an application need to be included. We achieve these guarantees by leveraging hardware support provided by commodity processors from AMD and Intel that are shipping today, and without requiring a new operating system.
