    Case Study: The “Smartphone as Next-Gen Automotive Infotainment” Concept

    The “Smartphone as Next-Gen Automotive Infotainment" concept consists of several apps that are optimized for Intel® processor-based Android* devices, or incorporated with the Intel® Context Sensing SDK. In this article, we introduce several development examples such as 64-bit Android optimization, or adaptation of the Intel® Context Sensing SDK, and then explain how to integrate those into the automotive infotainment ecosystem.

  • NFV Performance Optimization for Virtualized Customer Premises Equipment

    Many POCs focus on maximizing network throughput, but an equally important performance metric is latency. The authors used a testbed devised to characterize the performance of a virtual Customer Premises Equipment setup, based on the Intel® Open Network Platform architecture with the Data Plane Development Kit. Testing highlighted significant performance improvements in terms of reduction of latency and jitter.

  • How to printf inside (aborted) Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions (Intel TSX) transactions

    One of the most popular ad-hoc functional debugging techniques is to use the printf or fprintf functions to display the state of variables. However, if these functions are used inside an Intel® TSX transaction they can cause transaction aborts. The reason is that flushing the print output buffer involves an operating system call and an I/O operation: operations that cannot be roll backed by Intel® TSX. That means that the (f)printf output from transaction may be lost due to the machine state roll-back as a result of the transaction abort caused by the attempt to flush the I/O buffer inside the transaction. If the flush happens after a committed transaction then the printf output won’t be lost. In general, any transaction abort handler needs to use a fall-back synchronization mechanism that does not involve Intel TSX. It should, therefore, be possible to see the problem that is being debugged there where printf works as expected. However, what can you do if, for some reason, the problem is not reproducible in the fall-back execution? So far I haven’t had this problem, but if you do please consider the trick shown below.

    Intel® Software Guard Extensions Tutorial Series: Part 2, Application Design

    The second part in the Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) tutorial series is a high-level specification for the application we’ll be developing: a simple password manager that provides the same core functions as a commercial product while following good security practices, which we'll then use as a learning vehicle for designing for Intel SGX.
