Semantic MediaWiki

Type: talk

Length: 15 - 30 mins

Presenter(s): Jeroen De Dauw

Summary: What is Semantic MediaWiki, what can it do for me, and why is it not on Wikipedia yet?

What: Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free, open-source extension to MediaWiki – the wiki software that powers Wikipedia – that lets you store and query data within the wiki's pages. Semantic MediaWiki is also a full-fledged framework, in conjunction with many spinoff extensions, that can turn a wiki into a powerful and flexible “collaborative database”. All data created within SMW can easily be published via the Semantic Web, allowing other systems to use this data seamlessly. This talk will explain how it works both from a user perspective and a technical one, where it might be usefull for you and how you can effectively use it. It will also cover why this is not on Wikipedia yet, and how that is going to change over the next year.

Minemu: protecting buggy programs from memory corruption attacks

Type: talk, workshop, ect

Length: 30 - 45 mins

Presenter(s): Erik

Summary: Protecting buggy programs from memory corruption attacks.

What: Dynamic taint analysis is a powerful technique to detect memory corruption attacks. Yet with typical overheads of an order of magnitude, it is not something you would choose to deploy in any production environment. Minemu is a fast taint-tracking emulator for Linux which aims to be fast enough to be run on production systems.

Minemu is a fast, process-based taint-tracking emulator for Linux (x86, 32bit). By keeping track of where untrusted data (such as data from the network) is copied to inside your program, and by subsequently checking whether this data is used to take control of the program, Minemu effectively protects against most memory corruption attacks, both for known and unknown vulnerabilities. Tracking the flow of untrusted data during the execution of a program is slow because we effectively have to do an extra memory operation for each original memory operation. However, by using a special memory layout and utilizing SSE registers, Minemu tries to keep the overhead to a minimum.

When: no idea
