"Adding Code Dx to the SWAMP infrastructure improves the remediation process by making the testing results much easier to consume for today's software developers and security professionals," says
"It's well known that different software analysis tools have different strengths, and SWAMP provides easy access to all of these tools combined with a powerful analysis platform to handle code of all sizes. Code Dx provides the most effective way to analyze and act on all the data while also reducing the number of false positives that typically plague software testers."
The stakes are very high to improve software integrity for government and industry, Greene adds. Most of the major cases of breached security involve attacks on compromised software applications rather than the traditional attack vector on corporate networks. For example,
As more applications are being deployed via the Internet and delivered through wireless networks, the software applications themselves are more vulnerable to attack than ever, requiring the industry to take greater interest in ensuring the application code is resilient.
Livny says one important contribution of SWAMP will be to make all the existing tools better through a more robust testing environment. As SWAMP adds new assessment tools to its capabilities, Secure Decisions will create new adaptors to make them functional within Code Dx.
"We are constantly adding support for more open source software assurance tools and programming languages in Code Dx," says Ken Prole, Principal Investigator at Secure Decisions. "It's essential that we continue to expand the depth and breadth of Code Dx capabilities so SWAMP and its technologies are always on the leading edge."
Larger companies that already have in-house network and software security tools can add the SWAMP resource as a supplement. It will eliminate the need for companies to invest in every relevant assessment tool because SWAMP's mission is to stay on top of the field and implement new tools as they arise, Livny says.
