Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • Software

Mathias Payer mainly investigates Computer security, Memory corruption, Exploit, Memory safety and Control flow. His work on Arbitrary code execution is typically connected to Transmission as part of general Computer security study, connecting several disciplines of science. His work carried out in the field of Memory corruption brings together such families of science as Distributed computing, Binary translation, Return-oriented programming, Range and Protocol.

His studies in Exploit integrate themes in fields like Heartbleed, Certificate, The Internet and Vulnerability. In his research on the topic of Memory safety, Memory management and Address space layout randomization is strongly related with Software bug. His research in Control flow focuses on subjects like Implementation, which are connected to Control-flow integrity, Leverage and Compiler.

His most cited work include:

  • The Matter of Heartbleed (385 citations)
  • SoK: Eternal War in Memory (383 citations)
  • Code-pointer integrity (268 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Computer security, Operating system, Memory corruption, Software and Embedded system. In his research, Return-oriented programming is intimately related to Compiler, which falls under the overarching field of Computer security. His research in Operating system intersects with topics in Garbage collection and Function pointer.

Mathias Payer combines subjects such as Executable, Memory safety, Loader, Memory protection and Control flow with his study of Memory corruption. His study in Memory safety is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Buffer overflow, Heartbleed and Memory management. His Software research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Data mining, Service and Code.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Computer security (29.31%)
  • Operating system (21.55%)
  • Memory corruption (17.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Fuzz testing (12.07%)
  • Computer security (29.31%)
  • Software (15.52%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Mathias Payer mostly deals with Fuzz testing, Computer security, Software, Bluetooth Low Energy and Computer network. His Fuzz testing research includes themes of Software bug and Database. His Software bug research includes themes of Machine learning, Compile time and Artificial intelligence, Benchmark.

His research in Computer security intersects with topics in Tracing and Upload. He interconnects Python, Construct and Isolation in the investigation of issues within Software. His Bluetooth Low Energy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Session and Spoofing attack.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Decentralized Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing (80 citations)
  • RetroWrite: Statically Instrumenting COTS Binaries for Fuzzing and Sanitization (20 citations)
  • Early evidence of effectiveness of digital contact tracing for SARS-CoV-2 in Switzerland (19 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • Software

His scientific interests lie mostly in Computer security, Tracing, Upload, Pandemic and Then test. His Tracing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Privacy preserving, Process, Identity and Data Protection Act 1998. His Upload research includes elements of Bluetooth, Identifier, Interoperability and Beacon.

The various areas that Mathias Payer examines in his Pandemic study include Exposure Notification, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, Contact tracing and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. Then test is connected with 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak and Medicine in his study.
