Abstract

<p>Machine learning and deep learning in particular has been recently used to successfully address many tasks in the domain of code including -- finding and fixing bugs, code completion, decompilation, malware detection, type inference and many others. However, the issue of adversarial robustness of models for code has gone largely unnoticed. In this work we address this gap by: (i) developing adversarial attacks for code (a domain with discrete and highly structured inputs), (ii) showing that, similar to other domains, neural models for code are highly vulnerable to adversarial attacks, and (iii) developing a set of novel techniques that enable training robust and accurate models of code.</p>
