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.

Teachable moments
Location: Sutton North
Bart Miller (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Elisa Heymann (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Drawing from their experience performing vulnerability assessments of critical middleware, Bart Miller and Elisa Heymann walk you through the programming practices that can lead to security vulnerabilities and demonstrate how to automate tools for finding security weaknesses. You'll learn skills critical for software developers and analysts concerned with security. Read more.
