The First Expert Guide to Static Analysis for Software Security

Creating secure code requires more than just good intentions. Programmers need to know that their code will be safe in an almost infinite number of scenarios and configurations. Static source code analysis gives users the ability to review their work with a fine-toothed comb and uncover the kinds of errors that lead directly to security vulnerabilities. Now, there's a complete guide to static analysis: how it works, how to integrate it into the software development processes, and how to make the most of it during security code review. Static analysis experts Brian Chess and Jacob West look at the most common types of security defects that occur today. They illustrate main points using Java and C code examples taken from real-world security incidents, showing how coding errors are exploited, how they could have been prevented, and how static analysis can rapidly uncover similar mistakes. This book is for everyone concerned with building more secure software: developers, security engineers, analysts, and testers.

Coverage includes:

Why conventional bug-catching often misses security problems

How static analysis can help programmers get security right

The critical attributes and algorithms that make or break a static analysis tool

36 techniques for making static analysis more effective on your code

More than 70 types of serious security vulnerabilities, with specific solutions

Example vulnerabilities from Firefox, OpenSSH, MySpace, eTrade, Apache httpd, and many more

Techniques for handling untrusted input

Eliminating buffer overflows: tactical and strategic approaches

Avoidingerrors specific to Web applications, Web services, and Ajax

Security-aware logging, debugging, and error/exception handling

Creating, maintaining, and sharing secrets and confidential information

Detailed tutorials that walk you through the static analysis process

BRIAN CHESS is Founder and Chief Scientist of Fortify Software, where his research focuses on practical methods for creating secure systems. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from University of California Santa Cruz, where he studied the application of static analysis to finding security-related code defects.

JACOB WEST manages Fortify Software's Security Research Group, which is responsible for building security knowledge into Fortify's products. He brings expertise in numerous programming languages, frameworks, and styles together with deep knowledge about how real-world systems fail.

CD contains a working demonstration version of Fortify Software's Source Code Analysis (SCA) product; extensive Java and C code samples; and the tutorial chapters from the book in PDF format.

About the Author

B rian Chess is a founder of Fortify Software. He currently serves as Fortify’s Chief Scientist, where his work focuses on practical methods for creating secure systems. Brian holds a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of California at Santa Cruz, where he studied the application of static analysis to the problem of finding security-relevant defects in source code. Before settling on security, Brian spent a decade in Silicon Valley working at huge companies and small startups. He has done research on a broad set of topics, ranging from integrated circuit design all the way to delivering software as a service. He lives in Mountain View, California.

 

J acob West manages Fortify Software’s Security Research Group, which is responsible for building security knowledge into Fortify’s products. Jacob brings expertise in numerous programming languages, frameworks, and styles together with knowledge about how real-world systems can fail. Before joining Fortify, Jacob worked with Professor David Wagner at the

University of California at Berkeley to develop MOPS (MOdel Checking Programs for Security properties), a static analysis tool used to discover security vulnerabilities in C programs. When he is away from the keyboard, Jacob spends time speaking at conferences and working with customers to advance their understanding of software security. He lives in San Francisco, California.
