LLVM for secure code

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

An opportunity to discuss and explore all ares where LLVM (and indeed other compilers) are being used to support the creation of secure code.  Some of the techniques/projects I know of include the following.
  • Existing in-tree techniques: Stack protector, stack checking, stack clash protection, pointer bounds checking, control flow protection.
  • Existing out-of-tree techniques: Return address protection (RAP), structure constification, latent entropy extraction, kernel stack leak reduction, integer overflow detect
  • Verification of passes.
  • Academic work: masking with random data, automatic power analysis countermeasures.
I'll record notes and share them after the BoF.
