Abstract : Modern computer memories have been shown to have reliability issues. The main memory is the target of a security attack called Rowhammer, which causes bit flips in adjacent victim cells of aggressor rows. Multiple mitigation techniques have been proposed to counter this issue, but they all come at a non-negligible cost of performance and/or silicon surface. Some techniques rely on a detection mechanism using row access counters to trigger automatic defenses. In this paper, we propose a tool to build a system-specific detection mechanism using gem5 to simulate the system and Machine Learning to detect the attack by analyzing hardware event traces. The detection mechanism built with our tool shows high accuracy (over 99.8%) and low latency (maximum 264µs to classify when running offline in software) to detect an attack before completion.
