About the Edition

As the number of computers and computer systems in existence has grown over the past few decades, we have come to depend on them to maintain the security of private or sensitive information. The execution of a program may cause leaks of private or sensitive information from the computer. Static secure flow analysis is an attempt to detect these leaks prior to program execution. It is possible to analyze programs by hand, but this is often impractical for large programs. A better approach is to automate the analysis, which is what this thesis explores. We describe some previous research and give background information about secure flow analysis. A secure flow analyzer is presented. It implements a secure flow type inference algorithm, for a subset of Java 1.0.2, using a parser generator called Java Compiler Compiler (JavaCC). Semantic actions are inserted into a grammar specification to perform the secure flow analysis on a given program.

Static Analysis Tools. Our analysis is built upon the FlowDroid and Epicc analyses and the Soot analysis framework. The Flow-Droid static analysis is context-, flow-, object-, and field-sensitive and Android app lifecycle-aware [9]. FlowDroid performs a highly precise taint flow static analysis for Android, but its analysis is lim-1 /5/7.

In this work we thus present FlowDroid, a novel and highly precise static taint analysis for Android applications. A precise model of Android's lifecycle allows the analysis to properly handle callbacks invoked by the Android framework, while context, flow, field and object-sensitivity allows the analysis to reduce the number of false alarms. This include CodeSurfer/CodeSonar (R) for static analysis, and CodeSurfer/x86 for analyzing and rewriting binary executables. Sourcemeter is a static source code analyzer for Java, C/C++, RPG and Python. The Java code analyzer is able to find source code vulnerabilities like SQL-injection, XSS and some others. It works in a way similar to Lapse+.

Title: Learning a Static Analyzer from Data. Authors: Pavol Bielik, Veselin Raychev, Martin Vechev We implemented and instantiated our approach to the task of learning JavaScript static analysis rules for a subset of points-to analysis and for allocation sites analysis.

Prefer non-IDE based tools with Java APIs. [EDIT:] to clarify more, someSink and someSource are arbitrary methods names in classes SomeSome and SomeOtherClass respectively.

They may or may not be static and may take arbitrary number of parameters (which I should be able to define). The type of the. You can try JavaDepend, it complement other static analysis tools, and provides a CQL language to query code like database, JavaDepend provides also many interactive views to understand the existing code base and more than 82 metrics.

Chapter 1. Introduction. Static program analysis has been used since the early ’s in optimizing com- pilers. More recently, it has proven useful also for bug finding and verification tools, and in IDEs to support, for example, navigation, code completion, refactor- ing, and program understanding.

Static program analysis is the analysis of computer software that is performed without actually executing programs — Wikipedia. This is a collection of static analysis tools and code quality checkers. Pull requests are very welcome.

The advantage of static analysis is that it can find all potential security violations without executing the appli-cation. The use of bytecode-level analysis obviates the need for the source code to be accessible. This is espe-cially important since libraries whose source is unavail-able are used extensively in Java applications.

Secure Object Flow Analysis for Java Card The access control exercised by the Java Card firewall can be bypassed by the use of shareable objects. To help detecting unwanted access to objects, we propose a static analysis that calculates a safe approximation of the possible flow of objects between Java Card applets.

Static Code Analysis (also known as Source Code Analysis) is usually performed as part of a Code Review (also known as white-box testing) and is carried out at the Implementation phase of a Security Development Lifecycle (SDL). Static Code Analysis commonly refers to the running of Static Code Analysis tools that attempt to highlight possible vulnerabilities within ‘static’.

Flow analysis, sometimes called control-flow or data-flow analysis, is somewhat different. This type of code analysis checks for problematic constructions against a set of rules, while simulating decision paths to dig deeper into the application and root out hard-to-find defects, such as null pointer dereferences, buffer overflows, and security.
