2012 2012 IEEE 26th International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium  
If not, SyncChecker reports the error with diagnostic information. To reduce runtime overhead, we propose three dynamic optimizations.  ...  This paper presents a new method called SyncChecker to detect synchronization errors in MPI nonblocking communication.  ...  We appreciate useful discussion with Yang Zhang, Mai Zheng, and Dachuan Huang.  ...

Temporal memory safety errors, such as dangling pointer dereferences and double frees, are a prevalent source of software bugs in unmanaged languages such as C.  ...  When combined with a spatial-checking system, the average overall overhead is 116% for complete memory safety.  ...  Source-level instrumentation. A third option is source-level transformation to insert runtime checks (e.g., [5, 23, 30] ).  ...

Runtime Detection of Temporal Memory Errors [chapter]

Kostyantyn Vorobyov, Nikolai Kosmatov, Julien Signoles, Arvid Jakobsson
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Experimentation with E-ACSL using TempLIST benchmark comprising small C programs seeded with temporal errors shows that the suggested technique detects temporal memory errors missed by state-of-the-art  ...  These tools, however, cannot always detect errors arising from the use of stale pointers to valid memory (temporal memory errors).  ...  MemCheck [22] , a memory debugger built atop the Valgrind instrumentation platform [16, 17] , uses dynamic binary instrumentation (DBI) to instrument a program at runtime and track heap memory with bit-level  ...

Using Static Analysis to Reduce Dynamic Analysis Overhead

2005 Formal methods in system design  
Dynamic analysis (instrumenting programs with code to detect and prevent errors during program execution) can be an effective approach to debugging, as well as preventing harm from being caused by malicious  ...  One problem with this approach is the runtime overhead introduced by the instrumentation.  ...  Purify [8] is a commercial product that has proven to be successful in detecting buffer overruns, memory leaks, and other errors at runtime.  ...

Protecting C programs from attacks via invalid pointer dereferences

Suan Hsi Yong, Susan Horwitz
2003 Proceedings of the 9th European software engineering conference held jointly with 10th ACM SIGSOFT international symposium on Foundations of software engineering - ESEC/FSE '03  
Dynamic checks are then inserted; if at runtime the target of an unsafe dereference is not in the legitimate set, a potential security violation is reported, and the program is halted.  ...  Some are limited to protecting the return address only; others are more general, but have undesirable properties such as having a high runtime overhead, requiring manual changes to the source code, or  ...  We thank George Necula for help with CCured, and the anonymous reviewers for their useful suggestions.  ...

ACC_TEST: Hybrid Testing Approach for OpenACC Based Programs

2020 IEEE Access  
If so, it will be challenging to detect their runtime errors as well as their causes, whether the error is from the user source code or from the programming model directives.  ...  In this paper, we enhance ACC_TEST with the ability to test OpenACC-based programs and detect runtime errors by using hybrid-testing techniques that enhance error coverage occurring in OpenACC as well  ...  Our dynamic approach will use the annotation from our static approach to instrument the insertion statements in the user source code, and our dynamic approach will detect these errors during runtime.  ...

Hardware assisted pre-emptive control flow checking for embedded processors to improve reliability

Roshan G. Ragel, Sri Parameswaran
2006 Proceedings of the 4th international conference on Hardware/software codesign and system synthesis - CODES+ISSS '06  
The overheads are compared with the state of the art approach that performs t he same error coverage using software-only techniques.  ...  In contrast, the state of the art softwareonly approach required 50-150% additional code, and reduced performance by 53.5-99.5% when error detection was inserted.  ...  Software error detection scheme uses software routines to check proper control flow at runtime. The routines are inserted into the application at assembly level or at a higher level.  ...

WPBOUND: Enforcing Spatial Memory Safety Efficiently at Runtime with Weakest Preconditions

Ding Ye, Yu Su, Yulei Sui, Jingling Xue
2014 2014 IEEE 25th International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering  
Presently, the software industry typically enforces spatial memory safety by instrumentation.  ...  Due to high overheads incurred in bounds checking at runtime, many program inputs cannot be exercised, causing some input-specific spatial errors to go undetected in today's commercial software.  ...  Detecting spatial errors at runtime via instrumentation is conceptually simple but can be computationally costly.  ...
