Emerging Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) technologies, such as 3D XPoint, are expected to be in production as early as 2016. Emerging NVMs are very attractive for several reasons. First, they are non-volatile and hence incur no refresh power. Second, they are dense and promising for scaling down further. Finally, they are fast and have latencies comparable to(More)
As non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies are expected to replace DRAM in the near future, new challenges have emerged. For example, NVMs have slow and power-consuming writes, and limited write endurance. In addition, NVMs have a data remanence vulnerability, i.e., they retain data for a long time after being powered off. NVM encryption alleviates the(More)
