  • Programs written in languages that provide direct access tomemory through pointers often contain memory-related faults, which may cause non-deterministic failures and even security vulnerabilities. [...] Key Method Taint marks are then suitably propagated while the program executes and are checked every time a memory address m is accessed through a pointer p; if the taint marks associated with mand p differ, the execution is stopped and the illegalaccess is reported.Expand Abstract
