Abstract

The analysis reported in this poster developed from questions that arose in discussions of the Reducing Software Vulnerabilities working group, sponsored by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in 2016 [1]. The key question we sought to address is the degree to which vulnerabilities arise from ordinary program errors, which may be detected in code reviews and functional testing, rather than post- release.
