  • ISCA08 From Speculation to Security: Practical and Efficient Information Flow Tracking Using Speculative Hardware. Haibo Chen, Xi Wu, LiWei Yuan, Binyu Zang, Pen-chung Yew and Frederic T. Chong. To appear in the proceedings of 35th International Symposium on Computer Architecture, June, 2008 (ISCA 2008) [shift.pdf]


  • POLUS. Jun. 2006 ~ Sep. 2006. POLUS is a live updating system for user-level applications. It supports, the first time, live updating for multithreaded program. I wrote patches for the applications and participated in the evaluation.
  • SHIFT. Nov. 2006 ~ present. I am the co-author to design and implement SHIFT, which is a system that leverages deferred exception in modern computer architecture to accelerate dynamic information flow tracking (DIFT). Currently, as far as we know, performance of SHIFT is among the best in DIFT on real systems.
