June 15, 2020 Perry Cohen

IAR Systems announced updates to its C-STAT static code analysis tool, an add-on that is integrated in the C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain. The update adds coverage for MISRA C:2012 Amendment 1.

The amendment adds 14 new rules to MISRA C:2012 that focuses primarily on security concerns according to the ISO C Secure Guidelines.

“Since the launch of C-STAT five years ago, we have refined the technology according to customers’ requests, lately with a special focus on security through complete CERT C compliance launched earlier in 2020,” said general manager of embedded development tools at IAR Systems Anders Holmberg, in a press release. “By adding coverage for MISRA C:2012, Amendment 1, we help our customers even further to ensure secure, high-quality code at an early stage of their projects.”

As noted in the release, the analysis tool aligns with industry standards that include like MISRA C:2012, MISRA C++:2008 and MISRA C:2004, and also detects defects, bugs, and security vulnerabilities as defined by the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) and CERT C.
