Dynamic Program Analysis for Fun and Profit
February 25, 2021 | 7:30 – 9:00 AM PST
Join us for Dynamic Program Analysis for Fun and Profit, with Dmitry Vyukov, Principal Software Engineer, Google.
Dynamic analysis is one of the most common approaches to software quality assurance. This talk will give a short introduction into dynamic analysis, outline its strengths and weaknesses and contrast with static analysis. Then the talk will proceed to concrete dynamic tools available for the Linux kernel, types of bugs they can discover and share practical aspects of using them.
The session will begin with an overview by Dmitry Vyukov (45 minutes) and will be followed by Q&A – an opportunity to both ask Dmitry questions and for group discussion (45 minutes).
Dmitry Vyukov, Principal Software Engineer, Google
Dmitry works on dynamic tools at Google for the past 10 years. His projects include a set of user-space sanitizers (Address/Thread/MemorySanitizer), set of similar tools for the Linux kernel, Go data race detector and various fuzzers (syzkaller/syzbot, go-fuzz, libfuzzer). These tools allowed to discover and fix more than 3000 bugs in the Linux kernel. Dmitry also has interest in concurrency, parallelism and performance, contributed to TensorFlow, Go runtime, Abseil, author of a dozen of novel lock-free algorithms.
