Abstract: 

Persistent memory NVDIMMs create security challenges, some of which are familiar while others are new. The NVM Programming TWG has been working on a security threat model for Persistent Memory that exposes gaps where solutions need to evolve beyond those that met the needs of hard disks and SSD’s. This session describes the current work in progress of the TWG that will appear in a future white paper. Learning Objectives: Learn what how persistent memory security solutions may differ from hard disk and SSD solutions. Learn how multi-tenancy in a cloud datacenter relates to Persistent Memory security features. Show how protection of data at rest can facilitate secure reuse of NVDIMMs.
