The challenge is to design hardware that can check for malware and virus attacks WITHOUT slowing down the desired activities of the computer AND without creating a parallel processing space that virus writers can bypass by tricking it into ignoring their attacks.

It could be an interesting competitive advantage to have anti-virus software that is designed to be most effective on your hardware. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Hopefully Intel make McAfee run faster. It makes my speedy, high end work computer pokey. Thank goodness I have an administrator account and I can shut it down...

Chanj, From what I've read, Intel sees the importance of security in embedded systems and has invested to acquire the technology. With attacks being reported on everything from android phones to open source routers, I have to agree that this will be an issue that going forward needs addressing.

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.
