Abstract


Starting from the hardware-based mitigation of cold-boot attacks by transparently encrypting portions of RAM, a novel approach to supplement computer systems through the application of transparent transformations on memory areas is presented. This work provides a working, proof-of-concept implementation of such a system on an FPGA-based PCI Express card. More general possible transformations and applications such as data integrity and consistency, aggregation and processing or transactional memory are discussed.
