Safe Clearing of Private Data

We often need to store private data in programs, for example passwords, secret keys, and their derivatives, and we usually need to clear their traces in the memory after using them so that a potential intruder can’t gain access to these data. In this article we will discuss why you can’t clear private data using memset() function.

Sometimes, we need to create wrapper types. For example, types like unique_ptrshared_ptroptional and similar.

2038: only 21 years away

Sometimes it seems that things have gone relatively quiet on the year-2038 front.

That may seem like a long time, but the relatively long life cycle of many embedded systems means that some systems deployed today will still be in service when that deadline hits. One of the developers leading the effort to address this problem is Arnd Bergmann; at Linaro Connect 2017 he gave an update on where that work stands.
