Thank you for joining us for our 5th Anniversary celebration! We certainly hope you enjoy the conference. Here’s to Education, Collaboration, and Community!

We wish you both laughter and learning - and lots of both!

Cluck Cluck: On Intel's Broken Promises

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Currently, the virtual address for the page directory is hard coded in the kernel, but this is specific to each OS and version thereof. Cluck Cluck solves the chicken and egg problem (needing access to the page structures to gain access to the page structures) at an OS-independent, architectural level, highlighting how a newer Intel feature violated existing guarantees.
