Abstract

these switches must be controlled to protect the privacy and the intellectual property of the company. Given the nature of the information being stored, network switches are the preferred attack target. Currently, the problem is addressed by providing limited access to a few privileged administrative users and deploying security software. The following solution uses storage locking to prevent changes to persistent memory. Comparisons are made of all persistent memory at system runtime to evaluate whether modifications have occurred. This approach is different from other solutions because it completely locks the persistent memory.
