Secure Decisions Presents Software Assurance Visualization Research at VizSec 2010

Visualization system correlates vulnerabilities from multiple software analysis tools to improve software security. NORTHPORT, NY, November 18, 2010 – Researchers from Secure Decisions, a division of Applied Visions, Inc. and developer of visual analytic tools for cyber defense, presented “Visual Analysis of Code Security” at the 7th International Symposium on Visualization for Cyber Security (VizSec 2010). The symposium draws researchers and practitioners in information visualization and security and focuses on new visualization techniques to solve cyber security problems. This year VizSec was held in Ottawa, Canada on September 14th. The paper, authored by Dr. John Goodall, Hassan Radwan, and Lenny Halseth, describes a software assurance visualization system that visually correlates the output of multiple software analysis tools to better identify vulnerabilities in software code. The researchers discuss how the prototype performed in compiling and visualizing [...]
