by Ting, Dai, Ph.D., National University of Singapore (Singapore), 2015, 141; 10005992
Abstract (Summary)

Software components are building blocks of modern computer systems. Modern computer systems are complex integrations of software components that encapsulate many sets of software functionalities. Moreover, these functionalities are affected by both the interactions of software components and various system settings. As a result, software components can behave in an unexpected way, deviating from the original functionality provided by the software components. We call such a vulnerability, a component misuse vulnerability.

In this thesis, we propose systematic solutions to detect and prevent the component misuse vulnerability. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
