Meltdown and Spectre (or, why your processor has unfixable security flaws!)

Feb 14, 2019 · Austin, United States of America

Kernel and CPU guru, Kim Phillips will show exactly how and why most modern CPUs have gaping security holes that defy any true fixes! To get the most out of this presentation, a little homework before the meeting will help as the issues are fiendishly complex and subtle (which is why they got through years of the very cutting edge of Quality Control procedures devised by the human mind). Please do some research before the meeting to get the most out of the Q & A session. A few links (out of many):

We'll have snacks and drinks on hand, but sadly no Pizza (unless someone wants to step up and get their company to sponsor). We might also head out to nearby Torchy's afterwards if folks feel like it.
