Source Code Security Analyzers

[SAMATE Home | IntrO TO SAMATE | SARD | SATE | Bugs Framework | Publications | Tool Survey | Resources]

For our purposes, a source code security analyzer

  1. examines source code to
  2. detect and report weaknesses that can lead to security vulnerabilities.

They are one of the last lines of defense to eliminate software vulnerabilities during development or after deployment. A Source Code Security Analysis Tool Functional Specification is available.

Byte Code Scanners and Binary Code Scanners have similarities, but work at lower levels.
