Effect of Static Analysis Tools on Software Security: Preliminary Investigation
Vadim Okun, William F. Guthrie, Romain Gaucher, Paul E. Black

We evaluate the effect of static analysis tool use on software security in open source projects. We measure security by vulnerability reports in the National Vulnerability Database.
