Strengthening Inferred Specifications using Search Based Testing

Kamran Ghani, John A. Clark
2008 2008 IEEE International Conference on Software Testing Verification and Validation Workshop  
This leads to a much tighter (accurate) inferred specifications.  ...  Software specification is an important element of the software development process. However, in most cases the specifications are out-of-date or even missing.  ...  Our work shows that extant search based software test data generation approaches can be used to stress each inferred invariant with a view to falsifying it.  ...

Monotone digital signatures: an application in software copy protection

Edlira Martiri, Artur Baxhaku
2012 Procedia Technology - Elsevier  
According to this idea we have built an ID generation scheme which can be used in many situations where is needed such a level of security. We will apply this technique in software copy protection.  ...  One of the ways to fight duplication, software piracy and not only, is the usage of digital signatures.  ...  With all these a falsifier would build "real" signatures which would not be perceived as such at level j of control.  ...
