Storm Successor, Malicious Hardware, VR Theme Park, and Coding History
- Heron — Twitter’s open sourced its Apache Storm successor.
- A2: Analog Malicious Hardware (PDF) — paper presenting an insane security attack. In this paper, we show how a fabrication-time attacker can leverage analog circuits to create a hardware attack that is small (i.e., requires as little as one gate) and stealthy (i.e., requires an unlikely trigger sequence before effecting a chip’s functionality).
- Samsung Built a VR Theme Park — with bungee jumping!
- Where Code Comes From (PDF) — historical romp through the evolving concept of programming.
