What advances in type systems have had a recent effect… and what’s next? Join us to discuss where types are going, in both theory and practice.
Fuzzing has become the major technique to find vulnerabilities in software and has seen a recent explosion in research activity. We will discuss the origins of fuzzing and the major events that lead to this proliferation: from the “DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge” and “American Fuzzy Lop” seed events to the explosion of fuzzers that target hundreds of open source projects. Then, we’ll gradually ease into highlighting key research areas in software engineering and security such as coverage metrics, intelligent mutation operators, scheduling, seed selection, or different forms of feedback. In addition, we welcome interactivity and questions from the audience throughout.
