NIST Releases Report on First SATE

Posted on


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released a report on Static Analysis Tool Exposition (SATE) 2008 as Special Publication 500-279. GrammaTech’s CodeSonar® was one of eight participating tools.

From the report abstract:

“The NIST SAMATE project conducted the first Static Analysis Tool Exposition (SATE) in 2008 to advance research in static analysis tools that find security defects in source code. The main goals of SATE were to enable empirical research based on large test sets and to encourage improvement and speed adoption of tools.”

The report includes a section, Commentary on CodeSonar’s SATE Results, contributed by GrammaTech VP of Engineering Paul Anderson.

Government Computer News and Dr Dobb’s have both published articles about the report.
