The web is our primary gateway to many critical services and offers a powerful platform for emerging applications. However, security of the web platform is a major concern. Web vulnerabilities are pervasive, yet techniques for finding and defending against them are at a nascent stage. How can we build a secure web platform for the future? Towards this goal, my work investigates a broad range of solutions including new browser abstractions, languages, verification techniques and analyses.
Prateek Saxena is a PhD student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley. His research interests are in computer security and its areas of intersection with programming languages, formal methods, compilers and operating systems. His current work focuses on software and web security. He is the recipient of several awards, including the Symantec Research Fellowship Award in 2011 and the AT&T Best Applied Security Paper Award in 2010.
