Bart Miller
Professor | Chief Scientist, University of Wisconsin-Madison


Barton Miller is a professor of computer sciences at the University of Wisconsin, the chief scientist for the DHS Software Assurance Marketplace research facility, and software assurance lead on the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence. Bart also codirects the MIST software vulnerability assessment project in collaboration with his colleagues at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and leads the Paradyn Parallel Performance Tool project, which is investigating performance and instrumentation technologies for parallel and distributed applications and systems. In 1988, Bart founded the field of fuzz random software testing—the foundation of many security and software engineering disciplines—and in 1992, working with his then-student Jeffrey Hollingsworth, founded the field of dynamic binary code instrumentation and coined the term “dynamic instrumentation,” which forms the basis for his current efforts in malware analysis and instrumentation. His research interests include systems security, binary and malicious code analysis and instrumentation of extreme-scale systems, parallel and distributed program measurement and debugging, and mobile computing. Bart’s research is supported by the US Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, NATO, and various corporations.

Securing your network is not enough. Every service that you deploy is a window into your data center from the outside world—a window that could be exploited by an attacker. Bart Miller and Elisa Heymann explain how to minimize the security flaws in the software you develop or manage. Read more.
