Erik van der Kouwe receives NWO Veni Grant

Veni grant was awarded to Erik van der Kouwe, Assistant Professor in the VUSec research group. Title of the project: Vulcan: forging vulnerable code to fight fire with fire. Short summary: Vulnerabilities allow hackers to attack software. Researchers build defense mechanisms to keep hackers out, but we are unable to properly determine how effective they are. In this project we ‘forge’ our own vulnerable code to carefully test these defense mechanisms, thereby preventing real attacks.
