    on Nov 16, 09 • by Lynn Gayowski • with No Comments

    Klocwork will ship later this month version 9.0 of its Insight Pro product for source code analysis [1], which the company says offers capabilities for agile programming projects. Offered as a suite of tools, Insight Pro analyzes code for memory and resource leaks, buffer overflows, and security vulnerabilities. With version 9, Klocwork is “stepping outside of the traditional realm of just finding bugs,” said Gwynn Fischer, CTO at Klocwork. Capabilities in version 9.0 are intended to agile developers, who have to produce working code within a short time, Fisher said. Read More

  • SD Times: Klocwork Takes on Strengthening Code Creation

    on Nov 16, 09 • by Lynn Gayowski • with No Comments

    November 16, 2009 — Klocwork is spreading out beyond the static analysis game and rolling out new software to help ensure the creation of strong code. Klocwork Insight Pro, released today, consists of three main pieces of software around continuous static analysis, code review and automated code refactoring. Klocwork Insight Pro’s continuous static analyzer detects defects and vulnerabilities as code is being written. Gwyn Fisher, Klocwork’s CTO, said the new analysis capabilities focus on developers working in “tremendously compressed” development cycles. “We’ve focused previously on moving further upstream, getting into a developer’s IDE and giving

    Klocwork recently released its Insight Pro, a suite of developer tools aimed at maintaining high velocity throughout the software development process. Built on the company’s source-code analysis technology, the suite introduces three tools that let developers achieve greater iteration velocity while reducing the risk of bug debt. Insight Pro provides continuous static analysis that detects critical defects and security vulnerabilities at the developer’s desktop, as code is being written. This onthefly analysis provides developers with immediate visibility into errors being made, or vulnerabilities being left open. With a noclick usability model, attention to code quality

  • Software Assurance Forum Day 3 Recap

    on Nov 5, 09 • by Todd Landry • with No Comments

    My first day at the SWA forum was actually the 3rd day at the conference, and from all accounts it has been a very productive and relevant first 2 days. Today was no different as it was kicked off with a panel discussion on the Evolution of Software Assurance Processes, and included speakers from Lockheed Martin, Waters Edge LLC, SEI/CERT, and SafeCode. I thought it was an entertaining discussion from a group definitely passionate about the topic. Something seemed missing though as I came out of it hoping for something more…Some good questions rounded out

  • Compiler warnings, Coding standards, Code quality…oh my! (Part 2)

    on Nov 3, 09 • by Alen Zukich • with No Comments

    In the first blog series, we discussed the value of compiler warnings and wondered why a static analysis tool would have similar error checking features. In this installment, we want to dive deeper into this question by reviewing errors that can be found by compilers, why they matter, and what limitations compilers have in this area. Let’s take an example of the “implicit int” rule: int foo() { const x = 0; return x; } This is a situation where failure to specify a type results in this compiler warning from (gcc v.3.4.4) or Microsoft

  • Preparing for the Software Assurance Forum 2009

    on Oct 30, 09 • by Todd Landry • with No Comments

    Next week I’m heading out to the Software Assurance Forum (use SOF96945 for the conference code) in Washington D.C. (well, actually Arlington, Virginia, but D.C. sounds more glamorous). If you’re not familiar with what the SWA is, in a nutshell, its key objective is to encourage software developers to raise overall software quality and security from the start, rather than relying on applying patches to systems after vulnerabilities are discovered. Anyways, while I’m there, I’ll be taking part in 2 speaking opportunities. The first will be as part of a 6 person panel discussion entitled

  • “I’m gonna write me a new minivan” – is zero software bugs the right goal?

    on Oct 27, 09 • by Eric Hollebone • with 3 Comments

    I have always loved “I’m gonna write me a new minivan”  from Scott Adams.  To me, it never gets old.  Originally published in 1998, the theme that applied then still does today: driving 100% of defects or bugs out of the code-base is a laudable goal, but is it really the right one?   I would have to argue no.  There’s no silver bullet out there that will find all software defects and solve issues automagically, and until there is, software development will continue to struggle with prioritization.  Unfortunately, we live in a world of finite resources and constantly evolving demands,
