Researchers Develop Hardware Encryption for New Computer Memory Technology
May 17, 2011
Security concerns are one of the key obstacles to the adoption of new, non-volatile main memory (NVMM) technology in next-generation computers, that would improve computer start times and boost memory capacity. But now, researchers from North Carolina State University have developed new encryption hardware for use with NVMM to protect personal information and other data.
