This week:

Big news this week is that port-ia64 is open for buisness, Cherry G. Mathew 
has been working on this for a while now.
 The current status is that the source builds cleanly with a working 
toolchain. Most of the code is empty so dont expect a boot.
 Most of the work is being done using the ski emulator due to lack of ia64 
 If your interested in helping drop a mail to 
 Introduce per-page fingerprints in Veriexec. 

 Closes a hole where an attacker could, after the fingerprint has been 
verified and program loaded to memory, inject malicious code into the backing 
store on the remote storage, followed by a forced flush, causing a page-in of 
the malicious data from backing store, bypassing integrity checks. [Elad
