Description: This technical report addresses how to hide secrets from an operating system. The authors provide a detailed design for the VM blackbox and some microarchitecture level simulation derived performance data. They also describe a compiler directed prefetch scheme that uses both instruction and data prefetches to obfuscate the address traces on the address bus between on-chip L2 cache and memory.
