Why Invest in Automated Open Source License Management?


Software is a major component of life around us. It is at the heart of communications, transportation, safety, health, food, agriculture, defense, entertainment and virtually every other industry that one way or other touches us every day. Resourceful software development organizations and developers use a combination of previously created code, commercial software and open source software, and... » read more

DOM-Based Cross-Site Scripting


DOM-based attacks are a misunderstood, serious, and pervasive source of risk in contemporary web applications. The language that drives the web, JavaScript, is easy to understand and hard to master; junior and senior developers routinely make mistakes. Mix difficulty to master with an enormous attack surface, and you have the perfect storm for widespread vulnerability. These risks expose web ap... » read more

Deliver DO-178C compliant software on budget and on schedule


Ensuring safety in civilian airborne software is an ongoing challenge in the increasingly software-intensive aviation industry, yet accidents and fatalities caused by software are nearly unheard of in civil aviation. This impressive track record is due largely to the DO-178 standard. However, successful DO-178C certification involves significant costs and timelines. To avoid cost overruns an... » read more

Tineola: Taking A Bite Out Of Enterprise Blockchain


Enterprise blockchain adoption reached a fever pitch in 2018, but the security community has been late to the game of securing these platforms against attacks. We wanted to bridge the gap between the widespread use of enterprise blockchain platforms and the limited knowledge we have about their security by exploring the leading enterprise platform, Hyperledger Fabric, from the perspective of a ... » read more

Enabling Device Intelligence


The explosive growth in silicon and software for artificial intelligence applications is transforming everything we know about connectivity, energy-efficiency, mobility, and security. Machine learning (ML) techniques are already used in computer vision, object recognition, speech recognition, and big data analytics. Deep learning (DL) algorithms and neural networks are pushing both silicon and ... » read more

IP For Centralized ADAS Domain Controllers


A centralized architecture is becoming more popular to integrate the ADAS applications into a centralized ADAS domain controller. A centralized architecture reduces cost, minimizes development of separate software applications and reduces system complexity. As automakers adopt multi-domain controllers with centralized ADAS processors, the required performance and functionality of the ADAS proce... » read more
