Release of Parasoft C/C++test Enabling Organizations Adopt AUTOSAR C++14 Standard

December 9, 2019 Perry Cohen

Parasoft, an automated software testing company, announced the release of Parasoft C/C++test, the unified C and C++ development testing solution for enterprise and embedded applications. The release focuses on streamlining safety-critical and security coding standards compliance and reporting, bringing coverage for AUTOSAR C++14 and updated rule sets for detecting security weaknesses.

"Modern C++ is widely adopted and applied in the area of AI-based safety-critical systems, such as autonomous driving,” said VP of products at Parasoft Mark Labert in a press release. “The pressure for compliance is growing as the autonomous driving systems are becoming more mature and closer to the release. AUTOSAR C++ has become the primary choice for many organizations. The main challenge in implementing AUTOSAR C++ is the sheer volume of the standard with almost 400 guidelines.

"To implement a compliance process, organizations have been trying to settle on a custom subset of AUTOSAR C++ guidelines which are selected based on their specific organization and projects. For this process to be effective, organizations need to leverage a tool that ideally supports all the guidelines that can be detected by static analysis, so there is no limitation to their compliance process."

With the 10.4.3 release, Parasoft C/C++test now supports the latest edition (version 3.4) of CWE Top 25, and On The Cusp that was released in September. This enables organizations to find and eliminate the most frequent and severe security issues.

Parasoft C/C++test's automotive and security compliance packs offer these rules in ready-to-use test configurations along with dedicated compliance reporting. The packs automatically generate the required documentation to reduce the manual overhead of compliance activities. Parasoft offers compliance packs for a variety of safety-critical and security coding standards, including CERT C/C++, JSF and CWE, enabling customers to achieve the required level of safety and security in their systems with a single static analysis tool.
