Embedded Scandinavia  

"Code coverage for embedded targets and tool qualification": Presentation at Embedded Conference Scandinavia in Stockholm (Sweden) on 4th of November 2015

(Offenburg, 2 September 2015)

Verifysoft talks about Safety Standards and the related coverage levels that they will recommend at the Embedded Conference Scandinavia in Stockholm (Sweden) on 4th November 2015. We also introduce tool qualification towards certification of the embedded software for which code coverage has been measured. The Embedded Conference Scandinavia is a 2 days long conference and exhibition which covers all actual topics from the Embedded Sector. We are looking forward to meeting you at our booth during the conference on either 3th or 4th of November.

GrammaTech CodeSonar Version 4.1 Available

(Ithaca/New York, 29 May 2015)

GrammaTech announces the version 4.1 of the static code analysis tool CodeSonar. The new version is now available for source code. CodeSonar 4.1 for Binaries is also imminent.
The highlights of CodeSonar 4.1 are:

  • Distributed Analysis: This feature improves the analysis speed dramatically. Previous versions of CodeSonar could already run the analysis phase in parallel, but only on multiple cores or CPUs on the same machine. CodeSonar can now distribute the analysis work across a loosely-coupled cluster of heterogeneous machines.
  • MISRA C Warning Classes: There are many new warning classes. Most of them check compliance with MISRA C:2012 and MISRA C:2004.
  • Warning Clustering: This new option tells CodeSonar to group warnings into clusters if they are sufficiently similar.
  • Configuration Tool: This is a new way to invoke CodeSonar to facilitate setting up a new hub or adding a machine to an analysis cluster.
  • Authentication: A hub can now be set up to use third-party authentication mechanisms such as LDAP. Administrators can add their own custom authenticators if they wish.
  • Analysis Presets: Via a new command-line option users can choose a "preset" set of configuration options. For example, codesonar analyze Foo -preset misra ... will use the configuration options that turn on all the new Misra C checkers.
  • Taint Path Checking: The user interface can now be used to show how taint can propagate along a specified path.
  • Score and Significance: Score is a numeric value assigned to warning instances. High-scoring warnings are more serious. Significance is a property of a warning class such as reliability, security, style, or redundancy.
  • New Platforms: CodeSonar now runs on two new platforms: NetBSD and FreeBSD.
  • Lightweight Access Control: It is possible to restrict access to information on the hub on a per-user basis. This is a temporary solution until a full role-based access control (RBAC) is delivered in CodeSonar 4.2.

GrammaTech Starts Work on Advanced Analysis Engine for a Predictive Engine to Auto-Complete and Auto-Correct Code (DARPA´s PLINY Project)

(Ithaca/New York, 30 April 2015)

GrammaTech has begun work on PLINY, a joint effort among GrammaTech and three Universities, with the goal to automatically detect program defects, suggest program repairs, and complete program drafts. PLINY is part of DARPA´s (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Mining and Understanding Software Enclaves (MUSE) program.
This initiative seeks to gather hundreds of billions of lines of publicly available open-source computer code to mine in an effort to create a searchable database of properties, behaviors, and vulnerabilities.
GrammaTech´s static code analysis tool CodeSonar will be at the center of the effort to generate features. CodeSonar has an extraordinary scalability, and an analysis engine with proven capabilities for discovering subtle program properties.     > further information
