We present a study on software fault tree analysis (SFTA) conducted at the Software Assurance Technology Center at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. While researchers have made various attempts at SFTA, software assurance practitioners have been slow to adopt it. One reason is the intense manual effort needed to identify and draw the fault trees for the code of large software projects. Another is the lack of commercial tools to assist in the technique for software. Most SFTA research efforts… CONTINUE READING
