  journal={2006 22nd Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC'06)},
Many software security solutions require accurate tracking of control/data dependencies among information objects in network applications. This paper presents a general dynamic information flow tracking framework (called GIFT) for C programs that allows an application developer to associate application-specific tags with input data, instruments the application to propagate these tags to all the other data that are control/data-dependent on them, and invokes application-specific processing on… CONTINUE READING
