Introduction to Web Animations

May 7, 2021 @ 11:00 - 12:00

An online talk organised by CASTOR via the KTH Software Research Meetup. More info below, and from the following link: https://www.meetup.com/KTH-Software-Research-Meetup/events/277659655/ # Abstract Creative and beautiful animations can make websites more user-friendly. It’s part of my daily work to implement web animations. In this talk, I will introduce you to technologies of animations, usage scenarios, mathematical foundation. Also, I will show you some interesting examples, their implementation, and performance optimization. Through the above introduction, you will have a deeper understanding…

Maximizing Error Injection Realism for Chaos Engineering with System Calls

May 27, 2021 @ 16:00 - 17:00

Long Zhang (KTH) will present his work at the KTH Software Research Meetup, May 27, 16h, on zoom https://www.meetup.com/KTH-Software-Research-Meetup/events/278232204/ Abstract Some of the perturbation models for chaos engineering are based on a random strategy such as ChaosMonkey. However, realistic perturbations could also come from errors that have naturally happened in production. I would like to share more about how to improve the realism for chaos engineering experiments. During the talk, I would like to share our research work on chaos…

Securing the Software Dependency Supply Chain – A Practical Study

June 3, 2021 @ 11:30 - 12:30

Online Meetup event: https://www.meetup.com/KTH-Software-Research-Meetup/events/278254406/   # Abstract In the recent months there have been several high profile software supply chain attacks leveraging weaker spots in the complex software supply chain to attack otherwise hard to penetrate targets. Vulnerabilities in the supply chain is nothing new for security engineers but is often ignored by the broader development community whose first goal is to increase efficiency and throughput, which many times comes at odds with security. This has been researched for example…

Improve Resiliency and Performance With Controlled Chaos Engineering – Talk

June 8, 2021 @ 18:00 - 19:00

Abstract AWS Fault Injection Simulator is a fully managed chaos engineering service that helps you improve application resiliency by making it easy and safe to perform controlled chaos engineering experiments on AWS. In this session, we'll see how chaos engineering with AWS FIS can help improve our application's resiliency and performance, uncover hidden issues, expose blind spots, and more. We will also look at how to automate experiments to run them continuously. Bio of the speaker Gunnar is a Senior…

Hiding in the Particles: When Return-Oriented Programming Meets Program Obfuscation

June 15, 2021 @ 16:00 - 17:00

# Abstract Largely known for attack scenarios, code reuse techniques at a closer look reveal properties that are appealing also for program obfuscation. We explore the popular return-oriented programming paradigm under this light, transforming program functions into ROP chains that coexist seamlessly with the surrounding software stack. We show how to build chains that can withstand popular static and dynamic deobfuscation approaches, evaluating the robustness and overheads of the design over common programs. The results suggest a significant amount of…
