Measuring enforcement windows with symbolic trace interpretation: what well-behaved programs say
A static analysis design is sufficient if it can prove the property of interest with an acceptable number of false alarms. Ultimately, the only way to confirm that an analysis d...

Path-exploration lifting: hi-fi tests for lo-fi emulators
Processor emulators are widely used to provide isolation and instrumentation of binary software. However they have proved difficult to implement correctly: processor specificati...

Linear Obfuscation to Combat Symbolic Execution
Abstract. Trigger-based code (malicious in many cases, but not necessarily) only executes when specific inputs are received. Symbolic execution has been one of the most powerful t...

Database state generation via dynamic symbolic execution for coverage criteria
Automatically generating sufficient database states is imperative to reduce human efforts in testing database applications. Complementing the traditional block or branch coverage...

Theoretical Aspects of Compositional Symbolic Execution
Given a program and an assertion in that program, determining if the assertion can fail is one of the key applications of program analysis. Symbolic execution is a well-known techn...

Striking a new balance between program instrumentation and debugging time
Although they are helpful in many cases, state-of-the-art bug reporting systems may impose excessive overhead on users, leak private information, or provide little help to the dev...

Symbolic crosschecking of floating-point and SIMD code
We present an effective technique for crosschecking an IEEE 754 floating-point program and its SIMD-vectorized version, implemented in KLEE-FP, an extension to the KLEE symbolic ...

Interleaving Symbolic Execution and Partial Evaluation
Partial evaluation is a program specialization technique that allows to optimize programs for which partial input is known. We show that partial evaluation can be used with advanta...
