Techniques to discover properties of Java Card applications and to generate tests by means of parallel and distributed systems

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Java Card Virtual Machine executes Java code on devices called smart cards. In such devices, malicious applications aim at releasing confidential data or perform operations that should not be enabled. Research will aim to an approach for effectively represent a JCVM application, in order to find several of its properties. Models of applications will be derived and examples of applications, whether malicious or not, with the aim to characterize the properties of the models and reveal parts of an application that are malicious code. The analysis of the properties of the models, based on graphs, and representing examples of applications, will make use of parallel, distributed and efficient algorithms so that hundreds of thousands of potential nodes can be analyzed in reasonable time. The properties of malicious applications, revealed from the above analysis, can be used for analyzing the robustness and for generating test cases that can exercise the JCVM
