Finding Security Bugs in Java Programs using Datalog

Datum: Montag, den 14. Oktober 2013
Zeit: 14:00 Uhr c.t. *)

Recently, various zero-day exploits emerged for Java(TM) making computers that run Java(TM) potentially vulnerable. Though Java(TM) was designed with a strong emphasis on security and the language itself is type-safe, defects in the Java OpenJDK library permit attackers to break the security of Java(TM).

This talk gives an overview of the activities at Oracle Labs that has been developing a program analysis tool for Java. The program analysis tool will be able to identify and report security defects in the JDK library. In a pilot project, we specify security defects of Java programs in a restricted variant of Horn-Logic called Datalog. The declarative approach of expressing static program analyses has various advantages.
