Alameda, Ca. – Static analysis tool vendor Coverity and Wind River are teaming to integrate the former’s development testing platform for security with Wind River’s embedded software.
Coverity will offer an evaluation edition of Coverity Static Analysis, pre-configured for Wind River Workbench, supporting both Wind River Linux and Wind River’s VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS). The aim of the cooperative effort is to allow development teams to build security into the embedded software development process and effectively address security vulnerabilities as software code is written.
Coverity static analysis tools automatically scans source code for security and quality defects, exposing them in the developer’s existing workflow and greatly reducing the risk of security vulnerabilities making their way into the field.
“Increased security threats and continued growth of embedded device connectivity create an urgent need to address security during development,” said Marc Brown, Vice President of Tools and Marketing Operations, Products Group at Wind River. Coverity’s product offerings complement Wind River’s broader security portfolio comprising secure operating environments, testing software, and industry expertise.
Development teams in search of a complete testing solution, he said, can use Coverity to detect and fix errors during the coding phase of development before passing applications to quality assurance teams, and then use Wind River Test Management, including specific packages for security, a test automation system for embedded device software testing, to run dynamic tests during the quality assurance phase of the lifecycle.
