Two Google Research Awards for EC SPRIDE

Eric | March 19, 2013

Together with the group of Patrick McDaniel (Penn State) and Yves le Traon (University of Luxembourg), we have recently won a highly competitive Google Faculty Award to facilitate collaborative research on the Android infrastructure. The project “Plotting a Map of Android Inter-App Communication” is supported with 50,000 USD, but more importantly the award also gives us direct access to the related Google employees. Another award went to Prof. Michael Waidner for a collaborative project with Goethe Universität Frankfurt on “More Privacy in Online Social Networks”.

Google awards about 100 Google Faculty Awards twice a year to promote promising research projects in the field of computer science. For the current awards 600 entries have been submitted from 46 countries, 102 were successful.

CAST-Seminar: Sichere Software entwickeln – Erfahrungen, Methoden, Werkzeuge (UPDATED)

Eric | March 8, 2013

Am 25. April werden wird der CAST e.V.  ein Seminar zum Thema Sichere Software entwickeln – Erfahrungen, Methoden, Werkzeuge abhalten. Ich selbst werde darüber referieren, wie sich die Sicherheitsmodelle von Java und Android unterscheiden und welche Vor- und Nachteile sich hieraus für Endnutzer und Entwickler ergeben. Insbesondere werde ich auch einen Exploit für die zu Jahresbeginn bekannt gewordenen Java-Lücken erklären. Nähere Informationen zur Veranstaltung erfahren Sie hier.

2nd ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on the State Of the Art in Java Program Analysis (SOAP 2013)

Eric | March 1, 2013

Co-located with PLDI, at Seattle, submit by April 4th

For more than a decade, the Soot analysis framework has enabled hundreds of users to carry out research in static analysis of Java applications. To help bring together the community, the Soot community organized a first International Workshop on the State Of the Art in JavaProgram Analysis (SOAP) in 2012. As expected, discussions and presentations at this workshop helped catalyze future development of the Soot framework, spurring discussions and collaborations between different groups using Soot and other compiler frameworks. SOAP’13 will continue that positive experience. Although the focus of SOAP will be on the Soot framework, we warmly welcome influences and inspirations from other compilers and analysis frameworks. We are particularly interested in exciting framework ideas and innovative design approaches. The agenda for SOAP will also include discussions and work on integrating external contributions into the main Soot framework, as well as explorations of potential future extensions to Soot. Find out more here.
