Specific examples of such misleading conclusions include the following: that web applications have many loops, that non-string objects in web applications are extremely short-lived, and that web applications handle few events.
Ben Livshits is a researcher at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA. He received a B.A. from Cornell University in 1999, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2002 and 2006, respectively. Dr. Livshits’ research interests include application of sophisticated static and dynamic analysis techniques to finding errors in programs. He is known for his work on software reliability and especially tools to improve software security, with a primary focus on approaches to finding buffer overruns in C programs and a variety of security vulnerabilities (cross-site scripting, SQL injections, etc.) in Web-based applications. Lately he has been focused on how Web 2.0 application reliability, performance, and security can be improved through a combination of static and runtime techniques.
