I typically review systems and commercial software from a security stand point. Recently, there has been a push to review software that is developed in-house utilizing tools such as Burpsuite and Fortify SCA. The classes that have been offered to my co-workers have been best described as How-To install the Fortify software. I was hoping to find a book with an in-depth view of utilizing Fortify to analyze source code. While the main focus of the book is not on Fortify, I was hoping that the 2 Chapters (Tutorials) would be a good start as this is the only book I know of that deals with Fortify (except the proprietary HP manuals).

Why not just use the proprietary manuals and play with the software at work? Simple, I do not have time to read through manuals and play at work. I need something I can work with at home. The biggest problem I have with this book is that the software included is no longer functional. To install, you have to get a license from the Fortify website which is now owned by HP. Neither the authors nor HP will provide a license so the software is useless.

If you are looking for a book to aide in secure code analysis, this is not the book for you. Secure Programming with Static Analysis… I read as make your applications secure by using static code analysis to identify problems. While the authors do give a fair amount of bad code to learn from, the details are less forth coming than in other books. Rather than give examples of how to use static code analysis tools to identify and correct problems, the authors give details of how they wrote rules to identify the problematic code. So if you are a programmer wanting to write your own "Fortify" software, this is a great start.

OK book, but I purchased it for the practice software for HP Fortify - which doesn't work. HP no longer supports it, and it won't run without HP support.. I sent the book back.

If you are an architect who really serious about building security to your large-scale applications, then this book would offer only a hello world to security. All you find is a full-blownup security chapter "Part 1 and 2" for Standalone application applications beyond that nothing but google-able content. The worst is Part III discusses on web apps, XML web services security, privacy and privileged programs - poorly written and highly repetitive content. To the most disappointment, there is no chapter to show how to put-to-gether all these stuff in a real world enterprise application. I also noticed the book if has the same Java examples from the Java site. The chapter on Web services security is a joke, shows the authors lack of understanding on Web services security fundamentals. After browsing all the pages, I don't found anything that shows how to incorporate them in a working security architecture. The book also trying to promote a product, maybe this book is relevant for those use the author suggested products.

After having read every secure programming book in print, this is the book I would recommend to both working developers and students. The abundance of code examples in C/C++ and Java help this book stand out from the shelf of other secure programming books, but that's just the beginning of what sets this book apart from the rest.

While most secure programming books focus on the basics of security mistakes like buffer overflows, they're short on how to find and fix security flaws in a large body of code. Most of us have too much code to inspect manually line by line by the next release, so this book shows the reader how to effectively use static analysis tools as a part of the code review process to automate finding security bugs. The CD that comes with the book has a working demo version of the Fortify Source Code Analyzer tool, so the reader can gain hands-on experience with static analysis.

Once you've found the bugs, you could attempt to fix them one by one, or you could fix them in a consistent, structured manner using secure design strategies to solve problems like input validation and memory management that are the source of so many security problems. Secure Programming with Static Analysis has a readable and practical discussion of these strategies, with many code examples so the reader can easily apply these strategies. It also shows how to use static analysis tools to ensure that all of your code follows these strategies, so that no input escapes validation.

Every software developer needs to know how to program securely, and there's no better place to start learning than this book.

I brought this book as a course requirement and it has been much more than that. This book enlightens you with situations which you would have encountered previously but never realized how an adversary could exploit the situation to either break into your system or just cause havoc from outside. The authors have shared their company Software named Fortify which helps us analyze programs using static analysis. The only drawback is that the software is an out of date one which refuses to configure with windows 7 system and requires XP compatibility. Also understandably it is a demo version which has extreme constrains on the size of code being analyzed. Wish the authors would have looked into these minor details.
