Navy Beefing Up At-Sea Enterprise Network

National Defense Magazine

From the article: The CAVES program employs automated reasoning to identify central problems in cryptographic designs early in the design phase, he said. “If you’re exploring a wide variety of possible algorithms … you will quickly rule out the ones that might have security issues,” he added. “You get the benefits of higher security and […]


Achieving memory safety without compromise

“As embedded software developers, the tools we rely on must provide us with low-level control of the functionality and performance of the systems we build. There must be an ability to manipulate hardware registers to write device drivers, and we must be certain that no runtime system will interrupt our tasks and lead to missed […]
