This Security Research Showcase highlighted some of the security work going on in areas from software compartmentalisation to cybercrime. It featured a series of lightning talks by early-career researchers.
Two researchers discussed aspects of the CHERI cybersecurity technology – which leads the government’s Digital Security by Design programme – including CHERI software compartmentalisation.
In his talk on ‘CHERI memory safety: software stack and ecosystem’, Research Associate and PhD student Konrad Witaszczyk discussed the current state of available memory-safe software for CHERI.
Then fellow PhD student Dapeng Gao talked about ‘Library-based software compartmentalisation for CHERI’.
