Why Developers Need Static Analysis Tools

SCA FTW! WHY DEVELOPERS NEED STATIC ANALYSIS TOOLS Pwn Here's a no-brainer: You need to produce safe, reliable code that's free of security weaknesses and critical defects. With static analysis tools, you got this. Static analysis (noun, synony m: source code analysis/SCA) automatically detects weaknesses in computer software without executing the programs built from that software and enables developers to check-in clean code. SOFTWARE DEFECTS = LAUNCH DELAYS + RECALLS + BRAND DAMAGE + EXPENSE + SERIOUS HARM THERAC-25 RADIATION TOYOTA PRIUS THERAPY MACHINE ARIANE 5 FLIGHT 501 400K+ VEHICLES RECALLED PATIENTS SUFFER FROM MASSIVE $370M ROCKET SELF-DESTRUCTS DOSES OF RADIATION DEFECTS ARE HARD TO FIND: COST OF DEFECTS: THE GLOBAL ECONOMY SPENDS $312 BILLION ANNUALLY*** Most applications have DEV & MAINTENANCE BUDGET 22.4 SECURITY RISKS* 50ยข OF EVERY DOLLAR Without tools like static analysis or a code review process, programmers are less than 50% EFFICIENT in finding bugs in their own software** spent on soft ware development and maintenance goes towards finding and fixing bugs**** EFFICIENCY 50c STATIC ANALYSIS HELPS YOU FIND CRITICAL WEAKNESSES & COMPLY WITH KEY CODING STANDARDS SAMATE OWASP CERT -Buffer overflow -Concurrency violations -Un-validated user input -Dereferencing NULL pointers MISRA CWE DISA STIGS -Injection issues -Cross-site scripting -Concurrency errors -Endian incompatibilities -Use of uninitialized data FDA DO-178B -Memory and resource leaks ISO-26262 PCI SAVE TIME.

DEV MANAGERS: WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME? 1. Keep QA off your back by avoiding the lather-rinse-repeat cycle 1. Narrow the gap between your rock star coders and the new bs 2. Be a better developer by learning from your mistakes 2. Decrease risk by ensuring issues are fixed early in the dev cycle 3. Check-in clean code and move on to other things 3. Boost productivity by reducing the time spent on dealing with code defects 4. Avoid being the guy who codes a serious defect that gets into the wild 4. Keep improving your code base by tracking and reporting on code security, quality and complexity metrics DEPLOY SCA.

The point of this infographic was to communicate in a fun & funky way, the benefits that software developers will get from using source code analysis (aka static analysis) tools offered by Klocwork.
