LiSA will be presented tomorrow at SOAP!

Tomorrow we will present LiSA (https://github.com/UniVE-SSV/lisa), our novel library for static analysis, and in particular its application to simple analyses at SOAP! The paper “Static analysis for Dummies: Experiencing LiSA” by Pietro Ferrara, Luca Negrini, Vincenzo Arceri, and Agostino Cortesi has been published (https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/3460946.3464316), and Vincenzo will present it tomorrow at 4.45pm GMT+2:00 in the 10th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on the State of the Art in Program Analysis (you

“Static analysis for discovering IoT vulnerabilities” published in STTT

Just published in International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer: Pietro Ferrara, Amit Kr Mandal, Agostino Cortesi, Fausto Spoto: “Static analysis for discovering IoT vulnerabilities”.In this paper we discuss how IoT vulnerabilities can actually be exploited, and in which cases static analysis can help in preventing them. We present an extension of an industrial analyzer (Julia) that already covers five out of the top seven vulnerabilities of OWASP Top
