Crema: A LangSec-inspired Language presented at BSidesLasVegas 2015

by Jacob Torrey,

Summary : We discuss the potential for significant reduction in the size and complexity of verification tasks for input-handling software when such software is constructed according to LangSec principles, i.e., is designed as a recognizer for a particular language of valid inputs and is compiled for a suitably limited computational model no stronger than needed for the recognition task. We will demo Crema, an open-source programming language and restricted execution environment of sub-Turing power.
