New device reveals spinning head of sperm and gives scientists clearest view of its 3-D motion

Holographic microscope developed at UCLA presents new details of sperm locomotion in 3-D. Credit: UCLA Ozcan Research Group Scientists have been observing sperm cells since the invention of the optical microscope. But surprisingly little has been known about sperm swimming patterns in 3-D – information that could help and improve scientists’ understanding of the biophysics of sperm locomotion, which can shed light on key physical attributes of healthy and defect sperm. Now, a microscope developed by researchers at the UCLA…

Understanding the prevalence of web traffic interception

This is a guest post by Elie Bursztein who writes about security and anti-abuse research. It was first published on his blog and has been lightly edited. This post summarizes how prevalent encrypted web traffic interception is and how it negatively affects online security according to a study published at NDSS 2017 authored by several researchers including the author of this post and Nick Sullivan of Cloudflare. We found that between 4% and 10% of the web’s encrypted traffic (HTTPS)…

Mr. Damore, Welcome To the Prophet Club

In the Bible, being a prophet was not a sought-after job.  Prophets were chosen by God to deliver messages that more often than not turned out to be unwelcome.  And sooner or later, the same lack of welcome greeted the prophet himself as he stood in the city gate telling the people things they didn’t want to hear.  Bad things tended to happen to prophets when they got on the wrong side of the establishment.  The prophet Jeremiah, after telling…

Delivering Dot

Since March 30, 2017, Cloudflare has been providing DNS Anycast service as additional F-Root instances under contract with ISC (the F-Root operator). F-Root is a single IPv4 address plus a single IPv6 address which both ISC and Cloudflare announce to the global Internet as a shared Anycast. This document reviews how F-Root has performed since that date in March 2017. The DNS root servers are an important utility provided to all clients on the Internet for free – all F…

Finding inter-procedural bugs at scale with Infer static analyzer | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

The capabilities of static analyzers, which catch bugs before programs are run, are steadily improving. During our work on the Infer static analyzer, we often were asked about the differences between Infer and other open source analysis tools like Findbugs, Error-prone, and Clang Static Analyzer. A main difference is inter-procedural bugs, or bugs that involve interactions between multiple procedures. We’ll take a look at two examples of inter-procedural bugs that Infer found in Java and C — one from the…
