Abstract:

The Continuum project aimed to develop novel techniques to preemptively identify AC vulnerabilities in both the time and space domains. As part of this effort, a prototype implementation of these techniques was developed as part of a scalable, integrated platform that could be used by both expert and non-expert analysts on real software authored for the Java Virtual Machine JVM. Continuum led to the development of new vulnerability detection methods that have been empirically shown to discover zero-day bugs in widely used software. We conclude the report by laying out promising directions for future research.
