  • A low-cost approach to concurrent detection of processor control errors is presented that uses a simple hardware monitor and signatures embedded into the executing program. Existing signature-monitoring techniques detect a large portion of processor control errors at a fraction of the cost of duplication. Analytical methods developed in this study show that the new approach, continuous signature monitoring (CSM), makes major advances beyond existing techniques. CSM reduces the fraction of… CONTINUE READING
