Evaluation board seeks to prevent memory security breaches
Stephen LawElectronics Semiconductors ARM evaluation board memory
ARM Morello evaluation board, developed at Arm based on the CHERI technology, has been prototyped in a specially designed demonstrator Armv8.2-A SoC. The aim is to prevent memory security breaches in the underlying hardware in future, rather than reactively releasing software patches. This milestone marks two and a half years since we launched the Morello research program and developers can now begin testing the boards. Spanning across five years, this project aims to enable better built-in security for future processors, wherever compute happens. ARM has released several new resources including updates to the architecture specifications, software, tooling and two new user guides.
