This workshop is co-organized by Daniel Gruss and Clémentine Maurice. This is a follow-up of our talk if you want a hands-on.

Workshop in two parts.

  • First, learn about cache attacks and how to run them on your laptop! As an example, we'll show you how to use an automated tool to spy on keystrokes of gedit -- then run it on the tool of your choice :).
  • Then, learn how to run Rowhammer (native version, no JS)! We added more DRAM configurations, so if you already tried the Google tool didn't work for you, it might work.

Bring your laptop! We tested the attacks on Intel processors, but AMD welcome!
