  • Handling Static Configurability in Refactoring Engines

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):44 - 53

    Although most systems written in C are statically configurable with a preprocessor, contemporary commercial, open source, and research refactoring engines often do not support preprocessor directives well; even simple refactorings could introduce errors. To make refactoring practical in the presence of static configurability, the authors propose variability-aware refactoring and report on their ex... View full abstract»

    Smart spaces are becoming increasingly vulnerable from the interplay of cyber and physical entities. A representation of the spaces' topology can reveal security-relevant contextual characteristics, and a visualization tool allows security analysts to edit space topology and verify that access-control policies meet security requirements.
