The New York Times has posted an article on Peter G. Neumann and our work on clean-slate host and network security as part of their Science section.
ACM Queue has posted a video interview with Robert Watson, CTSRD project lead at Cambridge on the topic of research into the hardware-software interface, as well as the CHERI processor.
An early prototype of our SOAAP toolchain is now available for download.
- September 2012
- We have now posted a workshop paper describing the Security-Oriented Analysis of Application Programs (SOAAP) at the Workshop on Adaptive Host and Network Security (AHANS 2012) in Lyon, France.
