The Research Team responds to Request for Proposals from government and other sponsors:

Our expertise in software analysis and binary transformation comes from decades of experience of high-tech research with the U.S. government and other organizations. Over the past two decades, we have partnered with several groups to help solve some of the most complex software challenges that impact devices' resiliency, safety, and security. Our work has been focused in three areas:

Software Assurance: new techniques and technologies for analyzing and correcting software to ensure runtime integrity and prevent unplanned system breaches and failures.
Software Hardening: technologies solely focused on system resiliency.
Autonomic Computing: providing software systems with the ability to ‘self-protect’

This position is on the Research team.
