Software Protection with Intel® Tamper Protection Toolkit and Software Vulnerability Analysis

This paper discusses how Intel® Tamper Protection Toolkit protects critical code and valuable data against reverse-engineering and tampering attacks. It focuses on a single component of Intel Tamper Protection Toolkit called iprot which is used to obfuscate binaries.

  • My Experiences at IDF 2015 as a Black Belt Developer: The Intel® IoT Gateway

    I also took a look at the Intel IoT Gateway. For those of you not in the know, IoT stands for Internet of Things. The Intel IoT Gateway is a wireless router that fits between the edge devices and the cloud. My first thought was, “Hey, this is just a wireless router.” Talking to the gentleman hosting the demo, my future boss, I realized the gateway is much more than just a gateway/wireless router.

  • How to Verify That OpenSSL is Using Multibuffer With Your Web Server

    This article describes how to check if the multibuffer code path is being used so that systems administrators can verify that their web server is operating as expected. Note that this procedure assumes that the web server is running on a Linux*-based system.

  • Enabling Multibuffer for AES-CBC Encryption in Apache* and nginx*

    The OpenSSL* library v1.0.2 introduces the multibuffer enhancements for AES. Multibuffer significantly increases the performance of CBC mode encryption by processing multiple TLS records in parallel on a single hardware thread. As shown in the white paper Improving OpenSSL Performance, the multibuffer enhancements to AES-CBC encryption can result in a 50 to 100% increase in throughput. This makes it an attractive feature for web site administrators using these ciphers, and this article explains how to enable it under two popular, open source, Linux*-based web servers: Apache* HTTP Server from the Apache Software Foundation, and nginx* from Nginx, Inc.

  • Slides from ToorCon 17 talk on OpenSSL Performance

    I've sent the slides from my talk on Improving OpenSSL Performance to the ToorCon staff for distribution, but I am also making them available for download here in PDF format. I chose PDF since many of the slides have extensive notes which go into much greater detail that the slides could, and in many cases even cover detail that I could not put into the 50-minute session on Saturday.

    Presenting at ToorCon 17 in San Diego on October 24th

    I'll be speaking at the ToorCon 17 security conference which is taking place at the end of this month, from October 24-25th. My specific talk will be on Saturday at 1pm, and will cover some of the algorithm enhancements that were made to OpenSSL in order to increase the performance of AES-CBC and AES-GCM encryption.
