Research Contract: Computing Infrastructure Performance and Interoperability Research – Integration. K. Falkner and C. Szabo, DSTO Research Contract ($465,000) (2015)
This research agreement will be supporting research in the areas of combat system margins recovery and integration, as well as the research and development of a combat system modelling and analysis capability, continuing our existing collaborative research relationship with DSTO within the space of Systems Execution Modelling within distributed application contexts. The areas of research […]
Josiah Saunders has recently completed his CDIT Summer Internship, working on integrating video streaming capabilities within the MODPIE performance prediction environment. The MODPIE environment supports early performance prediction of distributed software systems, through the construction of performance models for the distributed software system that may be executed above realistic deployment scenarios. This enables the gathering […]
Computer Standards & Interfaces: ASE – A Comprehensive Pattern-Driven Security Methodology for Distributed Systems
Anton Uzunov’s thesis work has been in the area of pattern-based security methodologies for distributed systems. Final work from thesis has been recently accepted for Computer Standards & Interfaces. Incorporating security features is one of the most important and challenging tasks in designing distributed systems. Over the last decade, researchers and practitioners have come to […]
Information and Software Technology: A Comprehensive Pattern-Oriented Approach to Engineering Security Methodologies
Anton Uzunov is leading work into the development of a pattern-oriented approach to the engineering of secure software methodologies. Recent work in this space, accepted for publication in the Journal of Information and Software Technology, builds upon existing method engineering ideas to form a new comprehensive approach to engineering security methodologies. Developing secure software systems […]
Research Grant: Assessment and OS-Level Mitigation of Timing Channels. K. Falkner and Y. Yarom, NICTA CRP ($232,167) (2014-2015)
Assessment and OS-Level Mitigation of Timing Channels. K. Falkner and Y. Yarom, NICTA CRP ($232,167) (2014-2015) CDIT will be working with Professor Gernot Heiser’s team at NICTA/UNSW on a new collaborative project exploring timing channels and side channels on modern architectures. Led at Adelaide by Yuval Yarom, this project will explore the design and implementation […]
Yuval Yarom recently attended the USENIX Security 2014 conference in San Diego to present our work in defining the Flush+Reload side-channel attack: FLUSH+RELOAD: A High Resolution, Low Noise, L3 Cache Side-Channel Attack, Yuval Yarom and Katrina Falkner, The University of Adelaide Sharing memory pages between non-trusting processes is a common method of reducing the memory footprint of […]
