    Speaker: Ardalan Amiri Sani, UC Irvine

    Talk Title: Dealing with Vulnerabilities in Device Drivers

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Vulnerabilities in the device drivers of today's commodity operating systems (e.g., Android) remain a security concern due to the monolithic structure of the kernel. In this talk, we investigate three methods to mitigate this concern, with a focus on mobile devices. These approaches include a novel tool to find and fix these vulnerabilities, an efficient vetting layer to make exploits harder, and a device driver design possible for I/O devices with virtualization support.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium. Please note, due to limited capacity, seats will be first come first serve.
