organised by the Master of Science program of the School of Informatics on Interactive Hardware and Software Technologies.
Professor Cinzia Bernardeschi (Universita’ di Pisa) is going to lecture on
Secure Information Flow in programs
at the amphitheatre D22 of the Faculty of Sciences, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (old building of Faculty of Sciences) on Friday May 10, 2019 at 15:00.
Data leakage is considered an emerging security threat to organizations and companies. This makes the problem of secure information flow in programs of great importance. This talk introduces the Secure Information Flow (SIF), then focuses on static analysis to realize effective checking of SIF. The analysis is based on the theory of abstract interpretation and on a multi-level security policy assignment. The talk first presents the abstract semantics for a simple imperative language, then it considers different languages. It finally concludes by discussing SIF in Java card applications and in security annotated AUTOSAR models of automotive software.
