  • HyperFlow: A Processor Architecture for Timing-Safe Information-Flow Security 

    Ferraiuolo, Andrew; Zhao, Yuqi; Suh, G. Edward; Myers, Andrew C. (2018-05-01)
    This paper presents HyperFlow, a processor that enforces secure information flow, including control over timing channels. The design and implementation of HyperFlow offer security assurance because it is implemented ...
  • Undecidable Problems for Probabilistic Network Programming 

    Kahn, David (2017-07-07)
    The software defined networking language NetKAT is able to verify many useful properties of networks automatically via a PSPACE decision procedure for program equality. However, for its probabilistic extension ProbNetKAT, ...
  • Flow-Limited Authorization 

    Arden, Owen (2017-01)
    Enforcing the confidentiality and integrity of information is critical in distributed applications. Production systems typically use some form of authorization mechanism to protect information, but these mechanisms do ...
  • Lightweight Verification of Secure Hardware Isolation Through Static Information Flow Analysis (Technical Report) 

    Ferraiuolo, Andrew; Xu, Rui; Zhang, Danfeng; Myers, Andrew C.; Suh, G. Edward (2017-01-29)
    Hardware-based mechanisms for software isolation are becoming increasingly popular, but implementing these mechanisms correctly has proved difficult, undermining the root of security. This work introduces an effective ...
  • On Free ω-Continuous and Regular Ordered Algebras 

    Esik, Zoltan; Kozen, Dexter (2016)
    Let E be a set of inequalities between finite Σ-terms. Let V_ω and V_r denote the varieties of all ω-continuous ordered Σ-algebras and regular ordered Σ-algebras satisfying E, respectively. We prove that the free V_r-algebra ...
