Valuable News – 2020/10/26

The Valuable News weekly series is dedicated to provide summary about news, articles and other interesting stuff mostly but not always related to the UNIX or BSD systems. Whenever I stumble upon something worth mentioning on the Internet I just put it here.

Today the amount information that we get using various information streams is at massive overload. Thus one needs to focus only on what is important without the need to grep(1) the Internet everyday. Hence the idea of providing such information ‘bulk’ as I already do that grep(1).

    Czeล›ฤ‡, czy na takiej pล‚ycie gล‚รณwnej SiFive HiFive Unmatched pod procesor ARM, mogฤ™ zbudowaฤ‡ mini PC pod systemy Linux i BSD bez ukrytych trojanรณw sprzฤ™towych w chipsetach pล‚yt gล‚รณwnych intela, czyli to sล‚ynne IME? Podobno caล‚y ten podsystem u intela to system Minix i moลผe ci mikrofon oraz kamerkฤ™ uruchomiฤ‡ bez udziaล‚u naszego systemu. Rozumiem ลผe w procesorach hardware open source RISC-V w poล‚ฤ…czeniu z tฤ… pล‚ytฤ… gล‚รณwnฤ…, wszystko bฤ™dzie dziaล‚aฤ‡ od rฤ™ki bez sterownikรณw wล‚asnoล›ciowych?

      Fajna plytka, przypomnij mi o niej jak bedzie 10 razy tansza i w formacie Raspberry Pi ๐Ÿ™‚

      Teoretycznie nie powinno byc tam dodatkowych ‘przyjaciol’ jak IME.

        Wiesz znowu coล› odkryli w intelach, wiฤ™c warto szukaฤ‡ hardware open source. Maksym Goryachy, Dmitrij Sklyarov oraz Mark Ermolov wyodrฤ™bnili klucz szyfrujฤ…cy, ktรณry sล‚uลผy do zabezpieczania mikrokodรณw procesorรณw Intela, co w konsekwencji pozwala na przeprowadzenie inลผynierii wstecznej kaลผdej aktualizacji.
