Salty software to improve
fault isolation

Assistant professor Gang Tan of computer science is collaborating with scientists from Harvard University to develop a new tool that could lead to increased security and enhanced performance for commonly used web and mobile applications. The so-called RockSalt verifies that native computer programming languages comply with required security policies. Their work was presented at the June ACM Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation in Beijing.
