Next FOSDEM  will, again, have a security devroom, this time on
the topic of "Hardware and Software isolation mechanisms". We'd like
to invite submissions of talks and presentations from developers,
security researchers and other interested representatives of open
source and free software and hardware projects.
This is the call for talks and presentations that will take place in
the Security devroom at FOSDEM 2015.
Our topic this year:
As complex software tends to have bugs, methods to contain the damage
from a potentially serious bug (e.g., code injection, leak of memory
contents) are required. While such methods have been known and
available for a long time (HSMs and smart cards, privilege
separation), it is surprising that an attack like heartbleed required
the revocation of the private keys of a large part of the Internet.
For that reason Hardware and Software isolation mechanisms that could
mitigate such attacks, are again on the line, and the main theme of
