Privacy, Security, Encryption When was the last time you reverse-engineered all the PCI devices on your motherboard?. . . Enters the game-changer: IOMMU (known as VT-d on Intel). With proper OS/VMM design, this technology can address the very problem of most of the hardware backdoors. A good example of a practical system that allows for that is Xen 3.3, which supports VT-d and allows you to move drivers into a separate, unprivileged driver domain(s). This way each PCI device can be limited to DMA only to the memory region occupied by its own driver.

do you know how to get the hacker news rss feed to go to directly to the hacker news page, like how reddit's rss feed works? when i click on a hacker news article in my feed reader it goes directly to the linked page instead of the hacker news page with comments.
