Research Project

Automated Vulnerability Analysis of Hardware Models

I will investigate strategies to analyze vulnerabilities in computer hardware models, including both vulnerability detection and mitigation. This may include a variety of techniques such as formal modeling, dynamic analysis, and statistical data mining. The project will seek to develop new algorithms and techniques to address the security challenges within computer hardware and at the hardware-software interface.
