Technology to Better Protect Mobile Devices to be Presented at IEEE Homeland Security Conference in Boston
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ARM-based processors commonly found in smartphones and tablet computers can contain security vulnerabilities that make mobile devices more susceptible to hacking.
Researchers from University of California, Irvine have proposed a new algorithm that would screen for system vulnerabilities to such an attack before the devices are deployed. It will be a featured paper at the 2012 IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security (HST '12), 13-15 November in Waltham, Mass., outside Boston.
Zi-Shun Huang will present his paper, "Return-Oriented Vulnerabilities in ARM Executables" during the conference. He will discuss the new algorithm and demonstrate experimental results of detecting vulnerabilities on a Texas Instruments' Stellaris microcontroller.
The latest vulnerabilities in ARM-based processing systems have been unleashed by the Return-to-Zero-Protection attack.
