As processor chips become increasingly parallel, an efficient communication substrate is critical for meeting performance and energy targets. In this work, we target the root cause of network energy consumption through techniques that reduce link and router-level <i>switching activity</i>. We specifically focus on memory subsystem traffic, as it comprises(More)
Firewalls are ubiquitous security functions and exist in almost all network connected devices whether protecting host stacks or providing transient packet filtering. Firewall performance, which is a key ingredient for network performance, can be greatly degraded by traffic crafted to exploit its filtering algorithms. These attacks can greatly reduce the(More)
