Keynote-1: In Pursuit of a Trusted Computing Base: The Journey Through Virtualization
A common approach to securing computing systems is identifying and securing the trusted computing base (TCB), which enforces the overall security policies under a particular threat model. For the sake of whole-system security, the TCB should be small enough to be trustworthy, be capable of mediating critical operations to enforce security policies and have a minimized attacking surface. In this talk, I will introduce my journey of exploring virtualization to creating a TCB for both mobile and cloud systems. I will also share my experiences of making the TCB efficient and trustworthy, through exploiting existing hardware mechanisms as well as hardware/software co-designs. Finally, I will briefly outlook the challenges and opportunities in virtualization-based TCB for emerging computing models like serverless and AIoT.
