    Avoiding a cyber-triggered catastrophe

    October 28th, 2011

    An article I wrote two years ago (2009) for Atomium Culture was accepted one year ago (2010) and as a consequence it will be published in many European newspapers.

    I’ll be adding here the links to the articles as they get published:

    Next scheduled publications:

    Our Book is Out

    September 23rd, 2010

    In 2008, Miguel P. Correia and myself decided to write a book on software security. Two years (of really hard work) after, it is finally available!

    The book covers many themes related to software security, namely:

    • Vulnerabilities, Attacks and Intrusions
    • Buffer overflows, Cross-site scripting, SQL injection
    • Protecting against Copy and Modification of Software
    • Software Testing and Attack Injection
    • Static Code Analysis
    • Dynamic Protection Mechanisms
    • Virtualization
    • Trusted Computing

    More details about the book (in portuguese) can be found at its official website, at the publisher (FCA) website, and it can be bought online at FCA | FNAC | Wook
