The major challenge of Real Time Protocol is to balance efficiency and fairness over limited bandwidth. MPTCP has proved to be effective for multimedia and real time networks. Ideally, an MPTCP sender should couple the subflows sharing the bottleneck link to provide TCP friendliness. However, existing shared bottleneck detection scheme either utilize end-to-end delay without consideration of multiple bottleneck scenario, or identify subflows on switch at the expense of operation overhead. In this paper, we propose a lightweight yet accurate approach, EMPTCP, to detect shared bottleneck. EMPTCP uses the widely deployed ECN scheme to capture the real congestion state of shared bottleneck, while at the same time can be transparently utilized by various enhanced MPTCP protocols. Through theory analysis, simulation test and real network experiment, we show that EMPTCP achieves higher than 90% accuracy in shared bottleneck detection, thus improving the network efficiency and fairness.

Pre-Silicon hardware Trojan detection has been studied for years. The most popular benchmark circuits are from the Trust-Hub. Their common feature is that the probability of activating hardware Trojans is very low. This leads to a series of machine learning based hardware Trojan detection methods which try to find the nets with low signal probability of 0 or 1. On the other hand, it is considered that, if the probability of activating hardware Trojans is high, these hardware Trojans can be easily found through behaviour simulations or during functional test. This paper explores the "grey zone" between these two opposite scenarios: if the activation probability of a hardware Trojan is not low enough for machine learning to detect it and is not high enough for behaviour simulation or functional test to find it, it can escape from detection. Experiments show the existence of such hardware Trojans, and this paper suggests a new set of hardware Trojan benchmark circuits for future study.

Fuzz testing is a popular program testing technique. However, it is difficult to find hard-to-reach vulnerabilities that are nested with complex branches. In this paper, we propose semi-symbolic fuzz testing to discover hard-to-reach vulnerabilities. Our method groups inputs into high frequency and low frequency ones. Then symbolic execution is utilized to solve only uncovered branches to mitigate the path explosion problem. Especially, in order to play the advantages of fuzz testing, our method locates critical branch for each low frequency input and corrects the generated test cases to comfort the branch condition. We also implemented a prototype\textbackslashtextbarS2F, and the experimental results show that S2F can gain 17.70% coverage performance and discover more hard-to-reach vulnerabilities than other vulnerability detection tools for our benchmark.
