Prioritizing Alerts from Static Analysis with Classification Models

In this presentation, Lori Flynn describes work toward an automated and accurate statistical classifier, intended to efficiently use analyst effort and to remove code flaws.

Software Engineering Institute



The project created alert classification models using features derived from multiple static analysis tools, code base metrics, and archived audit determinations. The results are accurate predictors of alert validity, intended for use in automatic prioritization of alerts from static analysis tools that minimizes the number of alerts needing human assessment.
