Hack-Proofing Your C/C++ Code
Greg Davis (Director of Engineering, Compilers, Green Hills Software)
Location: Room 201
Date: Thursday, August 29
Time: 8:00 am - 8:55 am
Track: ESC - Embedded Software Design & Verification
Format: Technical Session
Vault Recording: TBD
While 85% of embedded designs use C and C++, these languages are notorious for allowing unsafe code practices that give hackers a way to attack. This talk shows exactly how to keep your internet-connected product safe by writing your code properly the first time. Well-proven tools and techniques can be used to augment any software design paradigm and to effectively hack-proof your code. Techniques include coding conventions, automatic run-time error checking, manual compile-time and run-time assertions, static analysis, and the most common mistakes to avoid.
