1 Chip Design Hardwires Security New microprocessor architecture keeps hackers at bay without compromising security Illustration: Bryan Christie Design BY SARAH ADEE // JANUARY 2008 Computer security is war. Security experts are in a constant arms race against the ingenuity of hackers. What’s more, the security specialists are often working with one hand tied behind their backs because, unlike their adversaries, they are constrained by privacy concerns. But researchers at Princeton University have developed a new chip - architecture that could one-up the hackers while easing the tension between the opposing poles of security and privacy. Princeton electrical engineering professor Ruby B. Lee and her co-workers invented what she calls the Secret Protection computer architecture. Computers built using the new technology can receive sensitive information for a short time (designated by a trusted authority), after which the information is cleared out of the device that accessed it. Lee expects the first adopters of this architecture to be makers of devices for first
