How to Enforce the SEI CERT C Secure Coding Standard Using Static Analysis

Learn how to configure static analysis tools to conform to the CERT C Secure Coding Standard and minimize the effort required.

The proliferation of embedded software and IoT devices is increasing the risks of security attacks on a daily basis. As “things” get more code and connect to the internet, they promise great new capabilities and functionality, but also increase the chances for a bad actor to penetrate our systems and even our home lives. With such large, sophisticated systems, we have to start taking software security seriously.

The SEI CERT secure coding standard is a great choice for securing your code, especially if your application is embedded or safety-critical.

In this webinar, David Svoboda (from CERT) and Arthur Hicken (from Parasoft) review the SEI CERT C Coding Standard and why it is necessary. They also cover how to best configure static analysis tools to conform to the SEI CERT C Coding Standard to minimize the noise and effort required to achieve compliance.

Watch the webinar to learn:

  • Why secure coding is important
  • How the SEI CERT C Coding Standard is organized
  • How static analysis can enforce the SEI CERT C Coding Standard
