Increased CERT C coverage with PRQA’s QA•C 8.1
PRQA demonstrates their capabilities in the area of security coding

PRQA | Programming Research, a global leader in static analysis, announces that QAC Version 8.1 provides improved enforcement of the CERT C Secure Coding Standard. Using this leading static analysis tool for C environments to enforce the CERT C rules helps developers eliminate insecure coding practices and undefined behaviors, which in turn can lead to vulnerabilities in the code. QAC 8.1 provides enforcement of 121 of the 202 statically enforceable CERT C rules, including 17 rules where QAC 8.1 is the only static analysis tool to offer coverage.

The CERT C Coding Standard is made up of 228 rules, many of which are based on security flaws discovered in real world code. The standard has been successfully applied in many industries, as effective enforcement of the rules will lead to higher-quality systems that are robust and more resistant to attack.

Full details of the CERT C rules enforced by QAC 8.1 are available on the CERT C website at www.securecoding.cert.org/confluence/display/seccode/PRQA+QA-C.
