End System Security

This area includes tools and methods for building software artifacts, servers, and networks that are resistant to attacks and failures. This includes research into vulnerability assessment and identification, programming languages and tools for secure programming, mobile code and "sandboxes," proof-carrying systems, trusted embedded systems, resilient server architectures, protection against malicious software, dynamic reconfiguration of systems, hardware architecture design, fault-tolerance, code tamperproofing, and penetration testing. Research into more secure operating systems and database systems falls in this area, as does research into better human-computer interfaces for security (HCI).
