Researchers from CSE were among those honored with a 2022 IEEE Cybersecurity Award for Practice for their work on WebAssembly Sandboxing for Firefox. CSE Department Chair Sorin Lerner and Associate Professor Deian Stefan – along with engineers from Mozilla and researchers from Stanford and the University of Texas at Austin – were recognized for their novel approach to improving memory safety for Firefox. The team addressed one of the open-source web browser’s biggest security challenges by breaking code into multiple sandboxed processes with reduced privileges.
