Memory protection is a way to control memory access rights and is a part of most modern instruction set architectures and operating systems. The main purpose of memory protection is to prevent a process from accessing memory that has not been allocated to it or that is only accessible to processes with a higher privilege level.
Security used to be about systems and software. As threats evolve, hardware engineers also have to familiarize themselves with trust and security terms and acronyms.
