Making the skies safe and secure with DO-178C compliance

A little background on DO-178 We live with software failure every day—from cell phones and laptops that crash or hang to headline-grabbing stories of personal data breaches. Software has been used in safety-critical airborne applications for decades, but fatalities caused by software are unheard of in civil aviation. Why this difference? The reason is the […]

Golden Cup was a world cup of trouble

Nobody with any connection to, or interest in, the FIFA World Cup can say they weren’t warned. In the days leading up to the quadrennial world championship of European football (or soccer), security experts put the word out constantly that everybody involved—players, organizers, staff, and spectators (including those watching on TV or online)—would be a […]

Can Synopsys Static Analysis (Coverity) automatically ignore issues in third-party or noncritical code?

Synopsys Static Analysis (Coverity) has powerful capabilities that can find issues deep within the logic of your application’s code. If you apply third-party or open source code during your build process, Coverity might even find issues in code your team didn’t write. Often, you won’t be interested in fixing that third-party code, for a variety […]

How is static analysis a productivity tool for engineering teams?

“I lost my keys. How long will it take to find them?” This is a laughable question, but it’s analogous to “How long will it take to debug this?” Developers scoff at this question as if it were an unreasonable demand, just as inexperienced project managers are shocked that a simple answer isn’t forthcoming. But […]

How to implement security measures without negatively affecting software quality

Over the past decade, most organizations have established a well-oiled process for software development and maintenance. We refer to this as the software development life cycle (SDLC). However, advancing security threats relating to insecure software have brought the focus to security implementation within the SDLC without hampering quality. Let’s examine a few strategies to implement security […]
