This presentation will introduce the audience to two new x86 security technologies developed by AMD which utilize new memory encryption hardware to provide new security enhancements. The first feature, Secure Memory Encryption (SME), is designed to protect systems from physical access attacks by encrypting some or all system memory. The second feature, Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) enables the ability to run encrypted virtual machines isolated from the hypervisor. This presentation will include a technical overview of these features, including ISA changes, security benefits, the key management framework, and Linux enablement.
