HulaHoop closed T530: CPU-induced latency Covert Channel Countermeasures as Invalid.

After running a bunch of tcp ping tests, the conclusion is this attack
is not really effective against TCP like ICMP. The latency is much lower
for TCP pings and though it slightly decreases with cpu stress it is not
consistent. Reloading pages in TBB with cpu stress
on/off does not impact latency readings while doing so with tc
attached has massive latency foot prints - implying it will ironically make such attacks much easier in addition to degrading performance.

Cyrus recommends adding delays per packet to disrupt inter-packet patterns that remain. The command can be fine tuned as such:

When an implementation is decided, let's decide if we can include this in security-misc for use on Linux hosts and Kicksecure. We would need some way in detecting the active NIC since on wireless systems wlan0 is the interface of choice and not eth0

tc-netem is a utility that is part of the iproute2 package in Debian. It leverages functionality already built into Linux and userspace utilities to simulate networks including packet delays and loss.
