I said "so-called" because in your paper you state that the BIOS frequently overwrites parts of memory during boot, therefore booting may in some cases prevent recovery of keys after power-off. Which means "cold boot" isn't a very good name, that's all. No, I don't doubt that you can recover keys from DRAM after interrupting power. btw thank you for the information. - Linux-crypto: cryptography in and on the Linux system Archive: http://mail.nl.linux.org/linux-crypto/
