Protecting you one colour at a time!

Computers have become almost entirely integrated within our lives over the last few decades.

While this has been amazing for the advancement of society it also comes with some risks. 

One risk is side-channel attacks, where attackers can use hidden information created by your computer running to obtain private data. These attacks can even be run through an Internet browser! 

This project aims to create a mechanism to protect against these attacks using a technique known as cache-colouring, which partitions the computers cache into 'colours'. Through this, we help close off another route for attackers to steal our precious data.
