Proceedings of the 16th Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems, Whistler, BC, Canada, May 2017
It is time to reconsider memory protection. The emergence of large non-volatile main memories, scalable interconnects, and rack-scale computers running large numbers of small "micro services" creates significant challenges for memory protection based solely on MMU mechanisms. Central to this is a tension between protection and translation: optimizing for translation performance often comes with a cost in protection flexibility. We argue that a key-based memory protection scheme, complementary to but separate from regular page-level translation, is a better match for this new world. We present MaKC, a new architecture which combines two levels of capability-based protection to scale fine-grained memory protection at both user and kernel level to large numbers of protection domains without compromising efficiency at scale or ease of revocation.
