The purpose of this short term scientific mission (STSM) was to implement compiler-guided techniques to decrease TM and reliability costs while remaining the full error coverage. To reduce the comparison overhead, we proposed analyzing variables and registers liveness and transforming code to decrease the lifetime of a variable, i.e. to decrease the vulnerability.
