embedded world 2021: Increasing Resilience to Cyberattacks Through Advanced Use of Static Code Analysis

Cyberattacks are present in various embedded devices and throughout different types of industries and products.

Developers utilize testing implementations such as static code analysis and proof, as well as dynamic testing to combat these attacks. On Monday, March 1st, Martin Becker from Mathworks will be identifying common reasons for this trend and also proposing techniques to address issues regarding how attack resilience of embedded software can be increased.

Specifically, Becker and Mathworks will offer insight on which vulnerabilities can or cannot be found by static code analysis, how to control analysis context and setup to find more vulnerabilities, and how to support root cause analysis and reduce false positives in library code. Per the company, the findings are based on a case study on the FreeRTOS operating system. All of these topics will be discussd at the first all-digital embedded world exhibition and conference.
