Reasoning about the unknown in static analysis
Static program analysis techniques cannot know certain values, such as the value of user input or network state, at analysis time. While such unknown values need to be treated as ...

A Factor Graph Model for Software Bug Finding
Automatic tools for finding software errors require knowledge of the rules a program must obey, or “specifications,” before they can identify bugs. We present a method that ...

Polymorphic Time Systems for Estimating Program Complexity
We present a new approach to static program analysis that permits each expression in a program to be assigned an execution time estimate. Our approach uses a time system in conjun...

Superblock formation using static program analysis
Compile-time code transformations which expose instruction-level parallelism (ILP) typically take into account the constraints imposed by all execution scenarios in the program. H...

Extracting safe and precise control flow from binaries
As a starting point for static program analysis a control flow graph (CFG) is needed. If only the binary executable is available, this CFG has to be reconstructed from sequences ...

Expect the unexpected: error code mismatches between documentation and the real world
Inaccurate documentation can mislead programmers and cause software to fail in unexpected ways. We examine mismatches between documented and actual error codes returned by 42 Linu...

HOIST: a system for automatically deriving static analyzers for embedded systems
Embedded software must meet conflicting requirements such as being highly reliable, running on resource-constrained platforms, and being developed rapidly. Static program analysi...

Incremental Algorithms for Inter-procedural Analysis of Safety Properties
Automaton-based static program analysis has proved to be an effective tool for bug finding. Current tools generally re-analyze a program from scratch in response to a change in t...

Impact analysis of database schema changes
We propose static program analysis techniques for identifying the impact of relational database schema changes upon object-oriented applications. We use dataflow analysis to extra...
