Vulnerability Discovery Poster (SEI 2015 Research Review)

October 2015 Poster
Edward J. Schwartz

A poster for the 2015 Research Review presentation on discovering vulnerabilities in software.


Software Engineering Institute

We created a new methodology for precisely and naturally defining vulnerabilities through the creation of patches. We use our methodology to study important questions regarding the practice of fuzzing.
