Highlights of the year
The first highlights of the year were the three Ph.D. defenses within the team (Humberto Abdelnur, Jérôme François) and Mohamed Nassar) and the Habilitation Degree diploma of our former team member Radu State.
2009 has also seen three scientific highlights in our contributions to the security of Voice over IP systems. There the first highlight is the design and implementation of a novel protection approach against known vulnerabilities. This approach includes a protection policy specification language called VeTo and an execution engine entitled SecSIP. We also publicly released our first Android SPIT protection application entitled Hinky. The second highlight is the novel backtrace model we did integrate in our fuzzing scheme. This has brough excellent feedback and helps improved fuzzing selection and fuzzers evalution.
A third highlight of 2009 is the outstanding evaluation received for its third year activity by the EMANICS network of excellence from the European Commission. Like in 2008, the project that we manage received the highest mark a project can get out of a review. We also received the best paper award at AIMS for our contribution on flow monitoring schemes in wireless MESH networks.
