Research - Privacy
Billions of people surf the web. Surprisingly enough, almost everyone uses a uniquely customized browser. These small differences are tantamount to a distinct digital fingerprint that can be surreptitiously collected by a new breed of inquisitive programs, spurring privacy concerns. A scientist at Inria research center in Rennes, Brittany, France, Benoît Baudry holds that software diversity is also at the crux of the solution against such prying tools.
Project - Europe
A powerful software development methodology, DevOps has become a very popular tool in the US for it greatly helps web giants to deliver more frequent updates. True enough, Europe hasn't catch up yet. Coordinated by Inria, STAMP is a consortium whose aim is to provide a critical missing piece to this methodology. To wit: an automated test generation tool that would make DevOps less risky and incidentally more palatable to European companies. This projet has just been selected as part of the EU H2020 call for proposals ICT-10-2016 ‘Software Technologies’.
Engineering - software
A routine practice in manufacturing for decades, the concept of product lines is now pervading the software industry. Vendors dream of deriving myriad variations of their software in order to meet specific customer demands and to address more market segments. Yet, managing the complexity of thousands options is no trivial challenge. At this juncture, the virtues of Model-Driven Engineering become all the more relevant, as French scientist Mathieu Acher explains.
Could software engineering find some inspiration in the way biological systems function? A multidisciplinary group of scientists spent three years exploring the concept in the context of Diversify, a European project led by Inria researcher Benoît Baudry. Their in silico experiments show that, just like biodiversity, software diversity is a huge plus when it comes to robustness and adaptability to changes.
