How can we ensure that platform hardware, firmware, and software work in concert to withstand rapidly evolving security threats? Architectural innovations bring performance gains but can also create new security vulnerabilities. In this panel discussion, from the 2007 Workshop on Computer Architecture Research Directions, Shay Gueron, Geoffrey Strongin, and Jean-Pierre Seifert assess the current state of security and discuss possible routes toward trusted computing.
