SAMATE and Evaluating Static Analysis Tools

  title={SAMATE and Evaluating Static Analysis Tools},
  author={Paul E. Black},
We give some background on the Software Assurance Metrics And Tool Evaluation (SAMATE) project and our decision to work on static source code security analyzers. We give our experience bringing government, vendors, and users together to develop a specification and tests to evaluate such analyzers. We also present preliminary results of our study on whether such tools reduce vulnerabilities in practice.
