Symposium and Onward; SQL Lint

The UROC symposium, which was basically a poster conference, went very well. It was very interesting to see all of the undergraduate research that had gone on - from quantum cellular automata (QCA) for nanocomputers to machine learning of simulated ant behavior. I was glad to get the feedback from the audience on the SQL Injection presentation and will continue to push to polish up the paper and set things up for the next stage of the work. One idea I want to look at further is coding standards for SQL and building a sort of lint for SQL traffic. We have coding standards for programming languages so there is no reason there should not be similar standards, that are checked for and enforced, for SQL.
