Suppose in a C++ program I use a memory region for temporarily storing an encryption key and don't overwrite that region afterwards. Then my program wants to send a data packet over the network. Due ...
Short of powering down and maintaining physical security for sufficient time, what are effective strategies for keeping keys from being disclosed by cold-boot attacks, and can anything be done without ...
