Abstract

Historically, fault injection was the realm of adversaries with physical access. This changed when research revealed that remote attackers could use software to inject faults. Plundervolt is a new software-based attack on Intel's trusted execution technology (SGX). Plundervolt can break cryptography and inject memory-safety bugs into secure code.
