  • Researchers mount successful attacks against popular anonymity network — and show how to prevent them.
  • What takes coders months, CSAIL’s “Helium” can do in an hour.
  • Whether “backdoor” or “front-door,” government access imperils your data, report authors say.
  • Srini Devadas, the Edwin Sibley Webster Professor in MIT's Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department and members of his group, the Computation Structures Group, have designed a process for thwarting memory-access attacks to steal data. Their scheme includes custom-built reconfigurable chips, now moving into fabrication.
  • Read about how Jeremy Stribling MS ’05 PhD ’09, Dan Aguayo ’01 MEng ’02 and Max Krohn PhD ’08 revealed holes in the world of scientific publications and conferences ten years ago, and how their work then still lives on.
  • Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) principal investigator and EECS Prof. Martin Rinard with members of his research group, the Center for Resilient Software, including CSAIL research scientist Stelios Sidiroglou-Douskos have developed DIODE (for Directed Integer Overflow Detection) a system to provide an effective mechanism for finding dangerous integer overflows that affect memory allocation sites in debugging code.

  • MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan and Associate Department Heads Bill Freeman, Silvio Micali, and David Perreault announced in February 2015, the promotions of eight faculty members in the department. Professors Adalsteinsson, Daniel, Golland, and Torralba are promoted to full professor. Professors Chilpala, Polyanskiy and Vaikuntanathan are promoted to associate professor. The promotions are effective July 1, 2015. Read more.
  • MIT announced a major thrust toward addressing cybersecurity with the launch of three new initiatives including one focused on technology research to be based in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL). Read more.
  • Please come to our Informational Meeting on Wednesday, March 18th to hear faculty, researchers, and grad students present on exciting research happenings at CSAIL, and how you can be a part of them! check it out!
  • A record number of Fellow selections from any single institution marks the election by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) of five CSAIL researchers and members of the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department to ACM 2014 Fellow. The ACM has cited Srini Devadas, Eric Grimson, Robert Morris, Ronitt Rubinfeld and Daniela Rus for "providing key knowledge" to computing.
