Feedback form is now closed.
Thunderbolt, shipped on MacOS and Windows platforms, allows the connection of external peripherals directly through the PCIe bus to a computer. Although silicon vendors have DMA remapping technologies to prevent DMA attacks, systems are still vulnerable to DMA attacks from malicious peripherals connected through the thunderbolt ports. This session will present the security issues we have identified with Linux, and solutions we have developed.


Lu Baolu

Senior Software Engineer, Intel Corporation
Baolu, employed by Intel, is the Linux kernel maintainer for Intel VT-d implementation. In recent years, he focused on technologies such as thunderbolt vulnerabilities, scalable I/O virtualization and shared virtual address.
