Microsoft and Hardware-enforced Stack Protection (Hsp)

Microsoft's goal is to invest in HSP security for operating systems, particularly Windows 10.

La protection HSP (Hardware-enforced Stack Protection) will reduce the risk of vulnerability by locking in access to the application code. Development is moving towards deep hardware integration that allows the limitation of large-scale attacks due to the increase in their cost.

Limiting memory security vulnerabilities. Mitigation of arbitrary code execution. Limiting the problem of ROP (return-oriented programming) which is an advanced operating technique such as battery overruns (overflow stack) and allows an attacker to run code. New hardware implementation of the CET flow controller (Shadow Stack compatible). Compilation for hardware-enhanced battery protection…
