Technical report on:
Security microarchitectures and related vulnerabilities.
The paper should include:
Read relevant paper(s) on
Write a technical report demonstrating your understanding of the paper(s)
Submit the report by the deadline Requirements
To help prepare you for writing technical documents in the future, you will write your project
paper in a simplified ACM format with one column, fully justified text. The simplified ACM template is
provided on myleoonline in the project module. Your reportshould be approximately 5-6 pages
mimicking a research paper. Your report will basically contain the following sections (which can be
adjusted depending on what you are reporting on)
Abstract or executive summary
: 100-200 words describing what has been done and results.
: This section includes a longer summary of what has been done, main observations
and results. The report introduction should briefly discuss how the used techniques are different
from previous work on the topic.
: This section includes summaries of previous related work including
references to the papers and other resources you needed to explore to fully understand the
topic you are reporting on. Include references to these resources in the references se
ction. In this section, you should aim to describe how the work you are reporting on is different and how
it improves and/or extends previous methods.
Describe your understanding of the main contributions of the topic you are reporting on: what was done, how it was done, how it works, etc. Provide architectural diagrams, charts, and figures where necessary with proper citation.
: Depending on the topic you are reporting on, you mayneedto include a description of the experimental setup (if included in the original paper you are reviewing). Aim to be concise and utilize graphs to show any improvements. Include a summary of results analysis: what the results mean and the trends that are revealed
Conclusions and Future Work:
Include here a summary of the work and results. Include any future work that is expected or could be done.
