Kernel memory inspection from FPGA fabric

Hi everyone, 

 

I have a rather high-level question. I want to conduct a research centered around Linux memory analysis for security purposes. 

Using Cyclone V SoC, will I be able to access OS memory footprint from custom IP built in FPGA fabric?  

 

Also, judging from TRM there's a powerful SDRAM controller interface.  

Is there a way to map every (near every) CPU request (at least memory address being accessed) to be somehow logged via FPGA? 

 

Thank you!

Maybe use the kernel debugger feature with DS-5?
