"May be they should ask Intel to make a set of instructions for security applications and make it available to all Security software vendors." It happened :) http://www.financenews.co.uk/investments/intel-extends-olive-branch-to-eu-in-a-bid-to-secure-mcafee/

If watever EU thinks is reality, lets look at positive side of it....what if hardware and software companies join hand and come up with solution which are optimal in nature to the end user.

Valid Concern. Its absolutely possible for Intel to add instruction sets to its CPUs which could speed up execution or scanning speeds. But considering the current state of most security bloatware,this kinda solution is definitely good for consumers. May be they should ask Intel to make a set of instructions for security applications and make it available to all Security software vendors.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
