Abstract

Logic programming is sometimes described as relational programming: a paradigm in which the programmer specifies and composes n-ary relations using systems of constraints. An advanced logic programming environment will provide tools that abstract these relations to transform, optimise, or even verify the correctness of a logic program. This talk will show that these concepts, namely relations, constraints and abstractions, turn out to also be important in the reverse engineer process that underpins the discovery of bugs within the security industry.
