C++17: Analysis and Risk Mitigation of Security Vulnerabilities
With the recent approval of the C++17 language standard, along with new features introduced in C++11 and C++14, embedded developers are writing code in all sorts of exciting new ways. However, the introduction of these new features introduces new points of failure and attack vectors for hackers. This paper explores the impact of these new features on software quality and identifies new and expanded security vulnerabilities and attack vectors that can be exploited. Based on an analysis of the standards by language experts and actual running code, sample vulnerabilities and defects will be presented, and techniques and standards for reducing risk will be evaluated. By gaining a better understanding of these new defects and vulnerabilities, developers and organizations will be better positioned to detect and mitigate issues earlier in the software development lifecycle.
