Congratulations to Prof. Santosh Nagarakatte, who has received a gift of $70,000 from Intel Corporation. Santosh’s Ph.D. thesis research on memory safety led to the development of new software and hardware for memory safety. Intel’s recently-announced MPX extensions for memory safety are similar in design to those proposed in Santosh’s Ph.D. dissertation. His doctoral work also led to the development of SoftBound/CETS, a software-based solution to memory safety problems. The new grant from Intel will support Santosh’s research on Memory Safety Analysis and Extensions for Intel MPX building on SoftBound/CETS.
