SWAMP Contributes to Standard Results Format

The SWAMP is now a participating member of the OASIS Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (SARIF) Technical Committee! The first meeting was held on Wednesday, September 6, 2017. With the help of the SWAMP, the committee will define a standard output format for static analysis tools, otherwise known as SARIF. A standard output would make it “feasible for developers and teams to view, understand, interact with, and manage the results produced by all the tools that they use.” SARIF will support the aggregation of results from a variety of static analysis tools, similar to the way that the SWAMP uses SCARF (SWAMP Common Assessment Result Format) with results viewers today, which allows developers to form an overall picture of program quality and quickly detect problems. This collaboration is another step towards lowering the barriers for software assurance and secure coding.

Spread the Word about SWAMP!

Lines of code give life to modern technologies. As technology continues to evolve and is used by millions of people, it is increasingly important to code securely. It only takes one line of faulty code to disrupt the global economy. Luckily, the Software Assurance Marketplace is here to help. As a free to use open source resource, the SWAMP allows users to test code for vulnerabilities to ensure that all code being used is free of errors.

SWAMP users from Germany, the UK, Paraguay, India, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, and many other countries are committed to the safety, security, and stability of software around the world. Join them in the fight for secure code! Spread the word about the SWAMP to help us promote software assurance!

CSIAC Webinar about SWAMP

CSIAC LogoThe SWAMP team will be presenting a webinar for the Cyber Security & Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC) on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm Eastern Time. This free webinar will provide an Overview of the Software Assurance Marketplace and SWAMP-in-a-Box. More details about the webinar and how to register can be found here.

SWAMP Software Is Open Source

Software from the SWAMP is open source! You may already have your own SWAMP-in-a-Box, a private/local instance of SWAMP, or our plug-ins for Eclipse, Jenkins, and Git/Subversion. But did you know that more of our software is also available on GitHub?

  • The assessment frameworks help to build and assess software in the SWAMP.
  • The results parser converts the output of software assessment tools into the SWAMP Common Assessment Result Format (SCARF).
  • Other software puts SCARF into a database.
  • Our libraries let clients read/write SCARF and perform common operations in the SWAMP.

SWAMP Presenting at CyberSecurity R&D Showcase

If you are attending the 2017 DHS CyberSecurity R&D Showcase in D.C. this week, the SWAMP will be presenting on Wednesday, July 12th at 11:10am as part of Track 1. The event will be held at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. from Tuesday, July 11th through Thursday, July 13th. The R&D Showcase and Technical Workshop is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s Cyber Security Division (CSD) and is the federal government’s largest cybersecurity research and development conference. Visit the event website for more information.

SWAMP-in-a-Box Update 1.30.114

We have released an update to SWAMP-in-a-Box (SiB) version 1.30. SiB release v1.30.114 contains a few bug fixes and a patch to allow the SWAMP plug-ins to work with SiB. If you have already downloaded or installed SiB v1.30 (v1.30.113), you are not required to download the latest update unless you would like to use the SWAMP plug-ins with your SiB instance.

The updated SWAMP-in-a-Box v1.30.114 is now available for download here or on GitHub. Note that you may still see the version reflected as 1.30, as not all files received the updated 1.30.114 version number, but all appropriate files have been updated.

  • The SWAMP now uses the “recursive” option to include linked sub-modules when pulling code from GitHub to create a new package or when adding a new package version.
  • The Native viewer for assessment results now includes information about the package, tool, and platform used, along with start and completion times, for the assessment.
  • We added new versions and/or updates for the following assessment tools: Android lint, Brakeman, Dawn, Reek, RuboCop, and ruby-lint.
  • We added support for newer versions of the Android SDK on the platform for building and assessing Android software packages.
