DATE: Friday 25 November 2016. 13:00h

LOCATION:  Kristen Nygaards sal (room 5370), Ole Johan Dahl's House.


13:00h Welcome at IFI

13:15h Talk: Taint analysis for ensuring information flow security properties for the Go language

14:00h Discussion

SPEAKER: Anna-Katharina Wickert, TU-Darmstadt

ABSTRACT: Taint analysis is a form of data flow analysis aiming at secure information flow. Many common attack vectors can be covered by a taint analysis e.g SQL Injections. We implemented a static taint analysis tool for Go. Go is a modern and statically typed programming language which has concurrency features as first-class members. This talk will present the first taint analysis for Go and our precise solution for the data flow of the concurrent data structure of Go.
