Mustakimur R. Khandaker, a Ph.D. candidate in the CS Department under the supervision of Prof. Zhi Wang, has published a full paper in the prestigious 25th ACM International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS’20), which will hold on March 16-20, 2020 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

ASPLOS is one of the top-tier conferences in the computer architecture and systems area. The paper, titled “COIN Attacks: On Insecurity of Enclave Untrusted Interfaces in SGX,” proposes a comprehensive threat model, named “COIN Attacks” in the Intel SGX enclave interface and develops an extensible framework to detect enclave vulnerabilities in the presence of the COIN attacks. The research reports 52 vulnerabilities in 10 GitHub open-source SGX projects. The artifact earns two badges “Artifact Available” and “Artifact Functional” from ASPLOS AE reviewers.

In addition, Mustakimur published two papers earlier in Control-flow Integrity (CFI): “Adaptive Call-site Sensitive Control Flow Integrity” won the Best Paper Award in EuroS&P, and “Origin-sensitive Control Flow Integrity” was published in USENIX Security, a top Computer Security conference.

All three projects are available at the author’s GitHub page:
