The power industrial control system is an important part of the national critical Information infrastructure. Its security is related to the national strategic security and has become an important target of cyber attacks. In order to solve the problem that the vulnerability detection technology of power industrial control system cannot meet the requirement of non-destructive, this paper proposes an industrial control vulnerability analysis technology combined with dynamic and static analysis technology. On this basis, an industrial control non-destructive vulnerability detection system is designed, and a simulation verification platform is built to verify the effectiveness of the industrial control non-destructive vulnerability detection system. These provide technical support for the safety protection research of the power industrial control system.

Mansoor, Niloofar, Muske, Tukaram, Serebrenik, Alexander, Sharif, Bonita.  2022.  An Empirical Assessment on Merging and Repositioning of Static Analysis Alarms. 2022 IEEE 22nd International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (SCAM). :219–229.
Static analysis tools generate a large number of alarms that require manual inspection. In prior work, repositioning of alarms is proposed to (1) merge multiple similar alarms together and replace them by a fewer alarms, and (2) report alarms as close as possible to the causes for their generation. The premise is that the proposed merging and repositioning of alarms will reduce the manual inspection effort. To evaluate the premise, this paper presents an empirical study with 249 developers on the proposed merging and repositioning of static alarms. The study is conducted using static analysis alarms generated on \$C\$ programs, where the alarms are representative of the merging vs. non-merging and repositioning vs. non-repositioning situations in real-life code. Developers were asked to manually inspect and determine whether assertions added corresponding to alarms in \$C\$ code hold. Additionally, two spatial cognitive tests are also done to determine relationship in performance. The empirical evaluation results indicate that, in contrast to expectations, there was no evidence that merging and repositioning of alarms reduces manual inspection effort or improves the inspection accuracy (at times a negative impact was found). Results on cognitive abilities correlated with comprehension and alarm inspection accuracy.
Utture, Akshay, Palsberg, Jens.  2022.  Fast and Precise Application Code Analysis using a Partial Library. 2022 IEEE/ACM 44th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE). :934–945.
Long analysis times are a key bottleneck for the widespread adoption of whole-program static analysis tools. Fortunately, however, a user is often only interested in finding errors in the application code, which constitutes a small fraction of the whole program. Current application-focused analysis tools overapproximate the effect of the library and hence reduce the precision of the analysis results. However, empirical studies have shown that users have high expectations on precision and will ignore tool results that don't meet these expectations. In this paper, we introduce the first tool QueryMax that significantly speeds up an application code analysis without dropping any precision. QueryMax acts as a pre-processor to an existing analysis tool to select a partial library that is most relevant to the analysis queries in the application code. The selected partial library plus the application is given as input to the existing static analysis tool, with the remaining library pointers treated as the bottom element in the abstract domain. This achieves a significant speedup over a whole-program analysis, at the cost of a few lost errors, and with no loss in precision. We instantiate and run experiments on QueryMax for a cast-check analysis and a null-pointer analysis. For a particular configuration, QueryMax enables these two analyses to achieve, relative to a whole-program analysis, an average recall of 87%, a precision of 100% and a geometric mean speedup of 10x.
Chiari, Michele, De Pascalis, Michele, Pradella, Matteo.  2022.  Static Analysis of Infrastructure as Code: a Survey. 2022 IEEE 19th International Conference on Software Architecture Companion (ICSA-C). :218–225.
The increasing use of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) in DevOps leads to benefits in speed and reliability of deployment operation, but extends to infrastructure challenges typical of software systems. IaC scripts can contain defects that result in security and reliability issues in the deployed infrastructure: techniques for detecting and preventing them are needed. We analyze and survey the current state of research in this respect by conducting a literature review on static analysis techniques for IaC. We describe analysis techniques, defect categories and platforms targeted by tools in the literature.
Samhi, Jordan, Gao, Jun, Daoudi, Nadia, Graux, Pierre, Hoyez, Henri, Sun, Xiaoyu, Allix, Kevin, Bissyandè, Tegawende F., Klein, Jacques.  2022.  JuCify: A Step Towards Android Code Unification for Enhanced Static Analysis. 2022 IEEE/ACM 44th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE). :1232–1244.
Native code is now commonplace within Android app packages where it co-exists and interacts with Dex bytecode through the Java Native Interface to deliver rich app functionalities. Yet, state-of-the-art static analysis approaches have mostly overlooked the presence of such native code, which, however, may implement some key sensitive, or even malicious, parts of the app behavior. This limitation of the state of the art is a severe threat to validity in a large range of static analyses that do not have a complete view of the executable code in apps. To address this issue, we propose a new advance in the ambitious research direction of building a unified model of all code in Android apps. The JUCIFY approach presented in this paper is a significant step towards such a model, where we extract and merge call graphs of native code and bytecode to make the final model readily-usable by a common Android analysis framework: in our implementation, JUCIFY builds on the Soot internal intermediate representation. We performed empirical investigations to highlight how, without the unified model, a significant amount of Java methods called from the native code are “unreachable” in apps' callgraphs, both in goodware and malware. Using JUCIFY, we were able to enable static analyzers to reveal cases where malware relied on native code to hide invocation of payment library code or of other sensitive code in the Android framework. Additionally, JUCIFY'S model enables state-of-the-art tools to achieve better precision and recall in detecting data leaks through native code. Finally, we show that by using JUCIFY we can find sensitive data leaks that pass through native code.
Muske, Tukaram, Serebrenik, Alexander.  2022.  Classification and Ranking of Delta Static Analysis Alarms. 2022 IEEE 22nd International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (SCAM). :197–207.

Static analysis tools help to detect common pro-gramming errors but generate a large number of false positives. Moreover, when applied to evolving software systems, around 95 % of alarms generated on a version are repeated, i.e., they have also been generated on the previous version. Version-aware static analysis techniques (VSATs) have been proposed to suppress the repeated alarms that are not impacted by the code changes between the two versions. The alarms reported by VSATs after the suppression, called delta alarms, still constitute 63% of the tool-generated alarms. We observe that delta alarms can be further postprocessed using their corresponding code changes: the code changes due to which VSATs identify them as delta alarms. However, none of the existing VSATs or alarms postprocessing techniques postprocesses delta alarms using the corresponding code changes. Based on this observation, we use the code changes to classify delta alarms into six classes that have different priorities assigned to them. The assignment of priorities is based on the type of code changes and their likelihood of actually impacting the delta alarms. The ranking of alarms, obtained by prioritizing the classes, can help suppress alarms that are ranked lower, when resources to inspect all the tool-generated alarms are limited. We performed an empirical evaluation using 9789 alarms generated on 59 versions of seven open source C applications. The evaluation results indicate that the proposed classification and ranking of delta alarms help to identify, on average, 53 % of delta alarms as more likely to be false positives than the others.

Shi, Haoxiang, Liu, Wu, Liu, Jingyu, Ai, Jun, Yang, Chunhui.  2022.  A Software Defect Location Method based on Static Analysis Results. 2022 9th International Conference on Dependable Systems and Their Applications (DSA). :876–886.

Code-graph based software defect prediction methods have become a research focus in SDP field. Among them, Code Property Graph is used as a form of data representation for code defects due to its ability to characterize the structural features and dependencies of defect codes. However, since the coarse granularity of Code Property Graph, redundant information which is not related to defects often attached to the characterization of software defects. Thus, it is a problem to be solved in how to locate software defects at a finer granularity in Code Property Graph. Static analysis is a technique for identifying software defects using set defect rules, and there are many proven static analysis tools in the industry. In this paper, we propose a method for locating specific types of defects in the Code Property Graph based on the result of static analysis tool. Experiments show that the location method based on static analysis results can effectively predict the location of specific defect types in real software program.

Odermatt, Martin, Marcilio, Diego, Furia, Carlo A..  2022.  Static Analysis Warnings and Automatic Fixing: A Replication for C\# Projects. 2022 IEEE International Conference on Software Analysis, Evolution and Reengineering (SANER). :805–816.

Static analyzers have become increasingly popular both as developer tools and as subjects of empirical studies. Whereas static analysis tools exist for disparate programming languages, the bulk of the empirical research has focused on the popular Java programming language. In this paper, we investigate to what extent some known results about using static analyzers for Java change when considering C\#-another popular object-oriented language. To this end, we combine two replications of previous Java studies. First, we study which static analysis tools are most widely used among C\# developers, and which warnings are more commonly reported by these tools on open-source C\# projects. Second, we develop and empirically evaluate EagleRepair: a technique to automatically fix code in response to static analysis warnings; this is a replication of our previous work for Java [20]. Our replication indicates, among other things, that 1) static code analysis is fairly popular among C\# developers too; 2) Re-Sharper is the most widely used static analyzer for C\#; 3) several static analysis rules are commonly violated in both Java and C\# projects; 4) automatically generating fixes to static code analysis warnings with good precision is feasible in C\#. The EagleRepair tool developed for this research is available as open source.

Moon, S. J., Nagalingam, D., Ngow, Y. T., Quah, A. C. T..  2022.  Combining Enhanced Diagnostic-Driven Analysis Scheme and Static Near Infrared Photon Emission Microscopy for Effective Scan Failure Debug. 2022 IEEE International Symposium on the Physical and Failure Analysis of Integrated Circuits (IPFA). :1–6.
Software based scan diagnosis is the de facto method for debugging logic scan failures. Physical analysis success rate is high on dies diagnosed with maximum score, one symptom, one suspect and shorter net. This poses a limitation on maximum utilization of scan diagnosis data for PFA. There have been several attempts to combine dynamic fault isolation techniques with scan diagnosis results to enhance the utilization and success rate. However, it is not a feasible approach for foundry due to limited product design and test knowledge and hardware requirements such as probe card and tester. Suitable for a foundry, an enhanced diagnosis-driven analysis scheme was proposed in [1] that classifies the failures as frontend-of-line (FEOL) and backend-of-line (BEOL) improving the die selection process for PFA. In this paper, static NIR PEM and defect prediction approach are applied on dies that are already classified as FEOL and BEOL failures yet considered unsuitable for PFA due to low score, multiple symptoms, and suspects. Successful case studies are highlighted to showcase the effectiveness of using static NIR PEM as the next level screening process to further maximize the scan diagnosis data utilization.
Aggarwal, Naman, Aggarwal, Pradyuman, Gupta, Rahul.  2022.  Static Malware Analysis using PE Header files API. 2022 6th International Conference on Computing Methodologies and Communication (ICCMC). :159–162.
In today’s fast pacing world, cybercrimes have time and again proved to be one of the biggest hindrances in national development. According to recent trends, most of the times the victim’s data is breached by trapping it in a phishing attack. Security and privacy of user’s data has become a matter of tremendous concern. In order to address this problem and to protect the naive user’s data, a tool which may help to identify whether a window executable is malicious or not by doing static analysis on it has been proposed. As well as a comparative study has been performed by implementing different classification models like Logistic Regression, Neural Network, SVM. The static analysis approach used takes into parameters of the executables, analysis of properties obtained from PE Section Headers i.e. API calls. Comparing different model will provide the best model to be used for static malware analysis

Yangfang, Ye, Jing, Ma, Wenhui, Zhang, Dekang, Zhang, Shuhua, Zhou, Zhangping, You.  2022.  Static Analysis of Axisymmetric Structure of High Speed Wheel Based on ANSYS. 2022 IEEE International Conference on Advances in Electrical Engineering and Computer Applications (AEECA). :1118–1122.
In this paper, the axial symmetry is used to analyze the deformation and stress change of the wheel, so as to reduce the scale of analysis and reduce the cost in industrial production. Firstly, the material properties are defined, then the rotation section of the wheel is established, the boundary conditions are defined, the model is divided by finite element, the angular velocity and pressure load during rotation are applied, and the radial and axial deformation diagram, radial, axial and equivalent stress distribution diagram of the wheel are obtained through analysis and solution. The use of axisymmetric characteristics can reduce the analysis cost in the analysis, and can be applied to materials or components with such characteristics, so as to facilitate the design and improvement of products and reduce the production cost.
Tian, Yingchi, Xiao, Shiwu.  2022.  Parameter sensitivity analysis and adjustment for subsynchronous oscillation stability of doubly-fed wind farms with static var generator. 2022 7th International Conference on Intelligent Computing and Signal Processing (ICSP). :215–219.
The interaction between the transmission system of doubly-fed wind farms and the power grid and the stability of the system have always been widely concerned at home and abroad. In recent years, wind farms have basically installed static var generator (SVG) to improve voltage stability. Therefore, this paper mainly studies the subsynchronous oscillation (SSO) problem in the grid-connected grid-connected doubly-fed wind farm with static var generators. Firstly based on impedance analysis, the sequence impedance model of the doubly-fed induction generator and the static var generator is established by the method. Then, based on the stability criterion of Bode plot and time domain simulation, the influence of the access of the static var generator on the SSO of the system is analyzed. Finally, the sensitivity analysis of the main parameters of the doubly-fed induction generator and the static var generator is carried out. The results show that the highest sensitivity is the proportional gain parameter of the doubly-fed induction generator current inner loop, and its value should be reduced to reduce the risk of SSO of the system.
Yin, Tingting, Zhang, Chao, Ni, Yuandong, Wu, Yixiong, Wong, Taiyu, Luo, Xiapu, Li, Zheming, Guo, Yu.  2022.  An Empirical Study on Implicit Constraints in Smart Contract Static Analysis. 2022 IEEE/ACM 44th International Conference on Software Engineering: Software Engineering in Practice (ICSE-SEIP). :31–32.

Smart contracts are usually financial-related, which makes them attractive attack targets. Many static analysis tools have been developed to facilitate the contract audit process, but not all of them take account of two special features of smart contracts: (1) The external variables, like time, are constrained by real-world factors; (2) The internal variables persist between executions. Since these features import implicit constraints into contracts, they significantly affect the performance of static tools, such as causing errors in reachability analysis and resulting in false positives. In this paper, we conduct a systematic study on implicit constraints from three aspects. First, we summarize the implicit constraints in smart contracts. Second, we evaluate the impact of such constraints on the state-of-the-art static tools. Third, we propose a lightweight but effective mitigation method named ConSym to deal with such constraints and integrate it into OSIRIS. The evaluation result shows that ConSym can filter out 96% of false positives and reduce false negatives by two-thirds.

Pujar, Saurabh, Zheng, Yunhui, Buratti, Luca, Lewis, Burn, Morari, Alessandro, Laredo, Jim, Postlethwait, Kevin, Görn, Christoph.  2022.  Varangian: A Git Bot for Augmented Static Analysis. 2022 IEEE/ACM 19th International Conference on Mining Software Repositories (MSR). :766–767.

The complexity and scale of modern software programs often lead to overlooked programming errors and security vulnerabilities. Developers often rely on automatic tools, like static analysis tools, to look for bugs and vulnerabilities. Static analysis tools are widely used because they can understand nontrivial program behaviors, scale to millions of lines of code, and detect subtle bugs. However, they are known to generate an excess of false alarms which hinder their utilization as it is counterproductive for developers to go through a long list of reported issues, only to find a few true positives. One of the ways proposed to suppress false positives is to use machine learning to identify them. However, training machine learning models requires good quality labeled datasets. For this purpose, we developed D2A [3], a differential analysis based approach that uses the commit history of a code repository to create a labeled dataset of Infer [2] static analysis output.

Ueda, Yuki, Ishio, Takashi, Matsumoto, Kenichi.  2021.  Automatically Customizing Static Analysis Tools to Coding Rules Really Followed by Developers. 2021 IEEE International Conference on Software Analysis, Evolution and Reengineering (SANER). :541–545.
Automatic Static Analysis Tools (ASATs) detect coding rule violations, including mistakes and bad practices that frequently occur during programming. While ASATs are widely used in both OSS and industry, the developers do not resolve more than 80% of the detected violations. As one of the reasons, most ASATs users do not customize their ASATs to their projects after installation; the ASATs with the default configuration report many rule violations that confuse developers. To reduce the ratio of such uninteresting warning messages, we propose a method to customize ASATs according to the product source code automatically. Our fundamental hypothesis is: A software project has interesting ASAT rules that are consistent over time. Our method takes source code as input and generates an ASAT configuration. In particular, the method enables optional (i.e., disabled by default) rules that detected no violations on the version because developers are likely to follow the rules in future development. Our method also disables violated rules because developers were unlikely to follow them. To evaluate the method, we applied our method to 643 versions of four JavaScript projects. The generated configurations for all four projects increased the ASAT precision. They also increased recall for two projects. The result shows that our method helps developers to focus on their attractive rule violations. Our implementation of the proposed method is available at
Paramitha, Ranindya, Asnar, Yudistira Dwi Wardhana.  2021.  Static Code Analysis Tool for Laravel Framework Based Web Application. 2021 International Conference on Data and Software Engineering (ICoDSE). :1–6.
To increase and maintain web application security, developers could use some different methods, one of them is static code analysis. This method could find security vulnerabilities inside a source code without the need of running the program. It could also be automated by using tools, which considered more efficient than manual reviews. One specific method which is commonly used in static code analysis is taint analysis. Taint analysis usually utilizes source code modeling to prepare the code for analysis process to detect any untrusted data flows into security sensitives computations. While this kind of analysis could be very helpful, static code analysis tool for Laravel-based web application is still quite rare, despite its popularity. Therefore, in this research, we want to know how static code (taint) analysis could be utilized to detect security vulnerabilities and how the projects (Laravel-based) should be modeled in order to facilitate this analysis. We then developed a static analysis tool, which models the application’s source code using AST and dictionary to be used as the base of the taint analysis. The tool first parsed the route file of Laravel project to get a list of controller files. Each file in that list would be parsed in order to build the source code representation, before actually being analyzed using taint analysis method. The experiments was done using this tool shows that the tools (with taint analysis) could detect 13 security vulnerabilities from 6 Laravel-based projects with one False Negative. An ineffective sanitizer was the suspected cause of this False Negative. This also shows that proposed modeling technique could be helpful in facilitating taint analysis in Laravel-based projects. For future development and studies, this tool should be tested with more Laravel and even other framework based web application with a wider range of security vulnerabilities.
Islam, Md Rofiqul, Cerny, Tomas.  2021.  Business Process Extraction Using Static Analysis. 2021 36th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE). :1202–1204.
Business process mining of a large-scale project has many benefits such as finding vulnerabilities, improving processes, collecting data for data science, generating more clear and simple representation, etc. The general way of process mining is to turn event data such as application logs into insights and actions. Observing logs broad enough to depict the whole business logic scenario of a large project can become very costly due to difficult environment setup, unavailability of users, presence of not reachable or hardly reachable log statements, etc. Using static source code analysis to extract logs and arranging them perfect runtime execution order is a potential way to solve the problem and reduce the business process mining operation cost.
Mezhuev, Pavel, Gerasimov, Alexander, Privalov, Petr, Butkevich, Veronika.  2021.  A dynamic algorithm for source code static analysis. 2021 Ivannikov Memorial Workshop (IVMEM). :57–60.
A source code static analysis became an industrial standard for program source code issues early detection. As one of requirements to such kind of analysis is high performance to provide response of automatic code checking tool as early as possible as far as such kind of tools integrates to Continuous testing and Integration systems. In this paper we propose a source code static analysis algorithm for solving performance issue of source code static analysis tool in general way.
Li, Shuang, Zhang, Meng, Li, Che, Zhou, Yue, Wang, Kanghui, Deng, Yaru.  2021.  Mobile APP Personal Information Security Detection and Analysis. 2021 IEEE/ACIS 19th International Conference on Computer and Information Science (ICIS). :82—87.
Privacy protection is a vital part of information security. However, the excessive collections and uses of personal information have intensified in the area of mobile apps (applications). To comprehend the current situation of APP personal information security problem of APP, this paper uses a combined approach of static analysis technology, dynamic analysis technology, and manual review to detect and analyze the installed file of mobile apps. 40 mobile apps are detected as experimental samples. The results demonstrate that this combined approach can effectively detect various issues of personal information security problem in mobile apps. Statistics analysis of the experimental results demonstrate that mobile apps have outstanding problems in some aspects of personal information security such as privacy policy, permission application, information collection, data storage, etc.
Lee, Sungho, Lee, Hyogun, Ryu, Sukyoung.  2020.  Broadening Horizons of Multilingual Static Analysis: Semantic Summary Extraction from C Code for JNI Program Analysis. 2020 35th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE). :127–137.
Most programming languages support foreign language interoperation that allows developers to integrate multiple modules implemented in different languages into a single multilingual program. While utilizing various features from multiple languages expands expressivity, differences in language semantics require developers to understand the semantics of multiple languages and their inter-operation. Because current compilers do not support compile-time checking for interoperation, they do not help developers avoid in-teroperation bugs. Similarly, active research on static analysis and bug detection has been focusing on programs written in a single language. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to analyze multilingual programs statically. Unlike existing approaches that extend a static analyzer for a host language to support analysis of foreign function calls, our approach extracts semantic summaries from programs written in guest languages using a modular analysis technique, and performs a whole-program analysis with the extracted semantic summaries. To show practicality of our approach, we design and implement a static analyzer for multilingual programs, which analyzes JNI interoperation between Java and C. Our empirical evaluation shows that the analyzer is scalable in that it can construct call graphs for large programs that use JNI interoperation, and useful in that it found 74 genuine interoperation bugs in real-world Android JNI applications.
Trautsch, Alexander, Herbold, Steffen, Grabowski, Jens.  2020.  Static source code metrics and static analysis warnings for fine-grained just-in-time defect prediction. 2020 IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME). :127–138.
Software quality evolution and predictive models to support decisions about resource distribution in software quality assurance tasks are an important part of software engineering research. Recently, a fine-grained just-in-time defect prediction approach was proposed which has the ability to find bug-inducing files within changes instead of only complete changes. In this work, we utilize this approach and improve it in multiple places: data collection, labeling and features. We include manually validated issue types, an improved SZZ algorithm which discards comments, whitespaces and refactorings. Additionally, we include static source code metrics as well as static analysis warnings and warning density derived metrics as features. To assess whether we can save cost we incorporate a specialized defect prediction cost model. To evaluate our proposed improvements of the fine-grained just-in-time defect prediction approach we conduct a case study that encompasses 38 Java projects, 492,241 file changes in 73,598 commits and spans 15 years. We find that static source code metrics and static analysis warnings are correlated with bugs and that they can improve the quality and cost saving potential of just-in-time defect prediction models.
Almashfi, Nabil, Lu, Lunjin.  2020.  Code Smell Detection Tool for Java Script Programs. 2020 5th International Conference on Computer and Communication Systems (ICCCS). :172–176.
JavaScript is a client-side scripting language that is widely used in web applications. It is dynamic, loosely-typed and prototype-based with first-class functions. The dynamic nature of JavaScript makes it powerful and highly flexible in almost every way. However, this flexibility may result in what is known as code smells. Code smells are characteristics in the source code of a program that usually correspond to a deeper problem. They can lead to a variety of comprehension and maintenance issues and they may impact fault- and change-proneness of the application in the future. We present TAJSlint, an automated code smell detection tool for JavaScript programs that is based on static analysis. TAJSlint includes a set of 14 code smells, 9 of which are collected from various sources and 5 new smells we propose. We conduct an empirical evaluation of TAJSlint on a number of JavaScript projects and show that TAJSlint achieves an overall precision of 98% with a small number of false positives. We also study the prevalence of code smells in these projects.
Adamenko, Yu.V., Medvedev, A.A., Karpunin, D.A..  2020.  Development of a System for Static Analysis of C ++ Language Code. 2020 International Multi-Conference on Industrial Engineering and Modern Technologies (FarEastCon). :1–5.
The main goal of the system is to make it easier to standardize the style of program code written in C++. Based on the results of the review of existing static analyzers, in addition to the main requirements, requirements for the structure of stylistic rules were identified. Based on the results obtained, a system for static analysis of the C++ language has been developed, consisting of a set of modules. The system is implemented using the Python 3.7 programming language. HTML and CSS markup languages were used to generate html reports. To ensure that rules can be stored in the database, the MongoDB database management system and the pymongo driver module were used.
