Wang Receives $128K NSF EAGER Grant

UTSA assistant professor of computer science Dr. Xiaoyin Wang received a 2017 National Science Foundation EAGER grant award in the amount of $128,288.

The project, titled “EAGER: Tracing Privacy-Policy Statements into Code for Privacy-Aware Mobile App Development,” will be conducted with UTSA’s Institute of Cyber Security laboratory.

Wang and the ICS will mine large sets of privacy policies and corresponding code to find out how, or to what extent, policies manifest themselves in code. To the extent that consistency between privacy policies and code can be determined, new approaches to privacy policy understanding and enforcement might be possible.
