In this issue's installment of Point/Counterpoint, the two teams take on software security. In "Software-Based Protection Is Moving to the Mainstream," Yuan Xiang Gu, Brecht Wyseur, and Bart Preneel make the point that software and hardware co-design will be the way the future takes shape; in their counterpoint, "Only Hardware-Assisted Protection Can Deliver Durable Secure Foundations," Jean-Daniel Aussel and Reiner Sailer argue that hardware is the only place to truly engineer in security.
