The 12th CREST Open Workshop

Security and Code

 

Date: 

Wednesday 6 April 2011

 

Venue: 

Room 106, Gordon House

29 GORDON SQUARE, LONDON, WC1H 0PP

(Directions)

 

Overview: 

Analysis of computer languages is the basis for many security properties. A well developed area of this research  is semantics based analysis of code to provide end to end flow security. Programs can be analysed for confidentiality, integrity, erasure properties, correct declassification and quantity of information flow. Other uses of semantic modelling in the security domain automatically detect vulnerabilities in code via abstract interpretation, model checking and theorem proving. In the last few years malware detection has also begun to benefit from a semantic approach.

 

Programme:

*Keynote will be 30 minutes allowing 30 minutes for discussion and questions.*
*Talks will be 20 minutes allowing 20 minutes for discussion and questions.*
