Meltdown - SPARC Solaris: The Only Safe Choice
Abstract:As the rest of the industry has been struggling with security vulnerabilities, SPARC Solaris platforms have been relatively quiet. Meltdown, otherwise known as CVE-2017-5754, has taken the world by storm. Operating Systems have long relied on Memory Management Units to isolate user application programs from the OS kernel. This had come to a screeching halt, leaving lesser secure systems in a world of hurt.
