Your Evil Twin and You

Digital twins are rapidly gaining popularity for the design and management of complex systems. The rise in availability of modeling tools coupled with continuous streams of real time data from live processes have turned the use of digital twins into a must for the system owner and operator. But what is the twin in the hands of a potential hacker? Read Dave Belt’s new blog…

The Spectre of Un-Patchable Hardware Haunts Us All — Don’t Meltdown!

Specter and Meltdown hacks

Ofttimes it has been difficult to explain the role of software protection in hardware-protected secure systems, but recently security researchers have helped us out by providing many examples of zero-day exploits where flaws that are baked into hardware or firmware lead to exploitable vulnerabilities in systems. In this article we are having a look at Spectre & Meltdown and explore how these attacks could have been avoided using application protection technology.
