Programmers interact with a variety of tools that help them do their jobs, from "undo" to FindBugs' security warnings to entire development environments. However, programmers typically know about only a small subset of tools that are available, even when many of those tools might be valuable to them. In this project, we investigate how and why software developers find out about -- and don't find out about -- software security tools. The goal of the project is to help developers use more relevant security tools, more often.
