Red Hat's Andrea Arcangeli sent out an interesting patch series on Friday to micro-optimize the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) to enhance the VMEXIT performance in wake of Spectre mitigations. The "KVM monolithic" patch series ends up linking the KVM common code both into kvm-intel and kvm-amd so that the common "kvm" kernel module can be dropped. This occupies more disk space but should yield better run-time performance particularly for systems mitigated against Spectre Variant Two. For def...

A remote code-execution bug exists in some configurations of the AMD Radeon graphics card that could allow an attacker to take control of a targeted system. The hack entails luring users of vulnerable systems to visit a specially crafted website that can deliver “a malformed pixel shader” to either a Radeon RX 550 or a Radeon 550 series graphics card. The prerequisites for the attack limit the scope of those impacted. According to Cisco Talos, which found the bug in May, the vulnerability only e...

Samsung is partnering with Amdocs to help more mobile operators virtualize their networks in the 5G era. The companies say they will collaborate to integrate virtual network functions (VNF) with operators that use Samsung’s 5G network offerings in the Open Networking Automation Platform (ONAP). “This is less related to new capabilities for Samsung Network equipment and very much focused on supporting [communications service providers] in their journey towards 5G and network virtualization, and s...

According to Forrest Norrod, Senior Vice President at AMD for Data Center and Embedded Solutions, AMD’s work on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 led to the development of the Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) feature for the company’s EPYC servers. Norrod believes that SEV will become a must-have feature for data center companies in the coming years."I think that it in three to four years, it will be ridiculous to even consider deploying a VM in the cloud if you can't control and isolate that thin...

This week I was at the AMD Epyc processor launch in San Francisco. I’ve been at a lot of AMD events, and up until this one, the general message was that AMD was almost as good as Intel but not as expensive. This year it is very different; Intel has stumbled badly, and AMD is moving to take the leadership role in the data center, so its message isn’t that it is nearly as good but cheaper anymore; it is that it has better customer focus, better security and better performance. Intel’s slip really ...

Global satellite operator SES announced a deal with Amdocs to develop an open network automation platform (ONAP)-based orchestration platform for the delivery of satellite-enabled network services.According to SES, the platform, which will run in Microsoft Azure, will be built on ONAP and implement Amdoc’s NFV technology.“Our vision is to make satellite-based networks a seamless and wholly integrated part of a global, cloud-scale network ecosystem,” said JP Hemingway, CEO of SES Networks, in a r...

Five boffins from four US universities have explored AMD's Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) technology – and found its defenses can be, in certain circumstances, bypassed with a bit of effort.In a paper [PDF] presented Tuesday at the ACM Asia Conference on Computer and Communications Security in Auckland, New Zealand, computer scientists Jan Werner (UNC Chapel Hill), Joshua Mason (University of Illinois), Manos Antonakakis (Georgia Tech), Michalis Polychronakis (Stony Brook University), and...

AMD has begun pushing out a firmware fix for its EPYC server processors that addresses the way the chips provide Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV). Left unpatched, an attacker could leverage the vulnerability to recover a secure key, which could then be used to access an isolated virtual machine (VM) on a targeted system.SEV is a feature that uses one security key per VM to isolate guests and the hypervisor from one another. Those keys are managed by the AMD Secure Processor. It is a hardwar...

Google says “confidential computing” is key to better cloud security and data protection. And it’s doubling down on its open source confidential computing framework and urging the rest of the industry to follow suit.“It’s important to have industry collaboration,” said Brandon Baker, tech lead for cloud security at Google, on a call with reporters. “We really want to make this mainstream and part of the experience for cloud.”While the technology behind confidential computing is still in its infa...

TriggerMesh launched an open source project that stitches together Amazon Web Services’ Lambda serverless architecture with the Knative open source set of serverless components to bridge the portability gap between the two platforms. That gap between serverless platforms has been one of the main barriers to broader serverless adoption.The TriggerMesh bridge is in the form of its Knative Lamdba Runtime (KLR, which is pronounced “clear”) project. The high-level focus of the project is to provide p...
