The first step in developing safe and secure code is to establish a standard for constructing defect-free code. The MISRA standard is widely used in safety-critical industries, such as automotive, medical, military, and aerospace, and provides a set of best practices for writing C code, facilitating the authorship of safe, secure, and portable code.

The current version of MISRA, MISRA C:2012, has evolved over several years and includes 143 rules and 16 directives for a total of 159 guidelines. Amendment 1 to MISRA C:2012, published in 2016, expanded the standard by 14 rules.

Parasoft C/C++test automates C and C++ static analysis, peer code review, and unit and component testing on host and target with comprehensive code coverage supporting all the common versions of the MISRA standards including MISRA C++ 2008, MISRA C 2012, and MISRA C:2012 Amendment 1 security guidelines. In this paper, learn how Parasoft C/C++test can streamline your deployment and help create safe, secure, reliable software required by ISO 26262 and MISRA.
