Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (SP4) is a new device in the line of hybrid computers today. It aims to work as both as table and laptop computer. There are multiple versions of SP4 that include devices equipped with i3, i5 and i7 core processors.
This makes SP4 a great addition for hospital, clinics or schools for its portability and features. As these locations can be prone to cyber-attacks, we plan to test this computer’s reliability and performance under cybersecurity attacks. The device tested is built with Intel Core i7-6650U 2.21 GHz processor with automatic overclocking capabilities up to 3.4 GHz, 16 GB Random Access Memory (RAM), 256GB hard drive and Windows 10 Professional operating system 64-bit version, plus one USB 3.0. The USB 3.0 port was used as Ethernet port with Gigabit adaptor from Freegene.
In this paper, we measure and present various computing parameters to understand the effects of cybersecurity attacks on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 computer.
