Whitepaper: A Conceptual Model For Comparative Analysis Of Standardization Of Vertical Industry Languages

by University of WisconsinJan 01, 2008

The standardization of common semantics depends on particular vertical industries such as insurance, banking, healthcare, and manufacturing. The standardization in each of the verticals has proceeded in ad-hoc and very unique ways. The objective of this research paper from Wisconsin is to develop a conceptual model for comparative analysis of standardization of vertical industry languages, which can be used to evaluate the current standardization practices and recommend ways to improve the standardization processes in the vertical industry domains.

Whitepaper: Static Analysis of Executables to Detect Malicious Patterns

by University of WisconsinJan 01, 2008

In the interconnected world of computers, malicious code has become an omnipresent and dangerous threat. Malicious code can infiltrate hosts using a variety of methods such as attacks against known software flaws, hidden functionality in regular programs, and social engineering.
