Legba: Fast Hardware Support for Fine-Grained Protection
ADVANCES IN COMPUTER SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURE, pp. 320-336, 2003.
Fine-grained hardware protection, if it can be done without slowing down the processor, could deliver significant benefits to software, enabling the implementation of strongly encapsulated light-weight objects. In this paper we introduce Legba, a new caching architecture that aims at supporting fine-grained memory protection and protected...More
