Holographic Probes of Inner Horizons

In the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, charged and rotating thermal ensembles are dual to black holes with inner Cauchy horizons. We argue that an uneventful inner horizon requires certain analytic properties of correlation functions in the dual boundary ensemble which are not consistent with causality and unitarity for charged black holes and rotating black holes in $D>3$. However, they are satisfied for correlators of a holographic $2d$ CFT in a rotating thermal ensemble. This suggests that strong cosmic censorship is enforced in gravity theories with a CFT dual, with the possible exception of the rotating BTZ black hole.
