Hello SG12/UB folks,

I'd like to start a discussion about p1315 secure_clear. Please see the paper's history on github.

Here's what I'd want SG12's help on: assume that there's a need for some sort of "secure clearing of memory", how do we fit this into the abstract machine? What behavior do we specify, what do we leave open, while meeting the stated security goals?

For example:

How should we talk about the feature so it best fits in C++? What should we change about the abstract machine to make it happen?

Once SG12 is satisfied with the paper, I'd like EWG and LEWG to review it. We also need to synchronize with WG14. Should we also talk to WG23?

Thanks,

JF
