Research

 

My work primarily lies in the area of software and systems security, with a higher focus on:

Mitigating Memory Corruption Vulnerabilities

  • for systems software written in C/C++/Assembly, such as OS kernels and browsers;
  • via hardware extensions such as VT-x, MPK, PAC, MTE, SMAP,  or custom ones on RISC-V;
  • against code-reuse and data-oriented attacks.

Automated Software Analysis

  • static: type analysis, data-flow analysis, taint tracking via LLVM;
  • dynamic: fuzzing via syzkaller/AFL, and symbolic execution.

Sandboxing

  • container, process, and VM isolation;
  • trusted execution environments such as ARM TZ, AMD SEV, Intel TDX.

Hardware Security

  • Meltdown, Spectre, Foreshadow, Pacman.
