A source code analysis toolbox for software security assurance

The STANCE Consortium, co-funded under the EU FP7 programme, has announced the successful completion of the R&D Project that has developed source code analysis tools for security and safety-critical applications. The project brings trust and security to software-driven systems used in critical industrial areas (such as networks, trusted computing platforms and web applications), and will reduce computer-related threats, errors and malfunctions. The originality of the project lies in using static analysis for an exhaustive detection of all faults of a given kind.
