Title: Developing Scalable Points-To Analysis: An Experience Report
Dr. Paddy Krishnan, Oracle Labs, Australia
Date & Time: January 12, 2017 15:00
Venue: Conference Room, C Block, 01st Floor, Dept. of CSE, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Bldg.
In this presentation I will first outline the standard declarative approach using the DOOP framework to program analysis as applied to security analysis. Unfortunately, the standard approach does not scale to systems that are of interest. We show how a demand-driven, staged approach yields desired results. We assume that a client queries the points-to information for some program variables. The novelty of our approach is a pre-analysis technique that is a combination of staged points-to analyses with program slicing and program compaction. Our points-to framework scales for code bases with millions of program variables and hundreds of thousands of methods.
