Abstract: New security architectures are difficult to prototype and test. They require interactions between hardware, operating systems, and applications, making them hard to simulate and monitor. The authors have designed and prototyped a testing framework using a virtualization platform which emulates the behavior of new hardware security architecture in the virtual CPU, and performs a wide range of hardware and software attacks on the system under test. The authors' testing framework significantly speeds up development of the testing environment and infrastructure, and provides APIs for launching attacks and monitoring the effects of an attack on the hardware and software layers, which is especially convenient during the design and validation phases for new hardware-software architectural solutions. The authors have used this testing framework to test the trust chain of the SP architecture as an example.
