TrustInSoft Announces Bug-Free IoT Application Security Test

TrustInSoft announced an Application Security Test (AST) designed to mathematically guarantee bug-free code in embedded Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

This AST for IoT is based on TrustInSoft’s Analyzer to provide the equivalent of static and dynamic code analysis of C/C++ source code using Formal Methods testing designed to guarantee the absence of undefined source code behaviors.    

Per the company, Formal Methods testing speeds up the deployment process by producing a mathematical twin of C/C++ source code to prove the absence of source code bugs for any input. Customers who use TrustInSoft’s Analyzer with Formal Methods for embedded software testing can decrease IoT device rollout times by reducing bug detection time up to 40X and decreasing code verification time by 4X.   

This is good news for software and software infrastructure vendors looking to be compliant with the new guidelines published by the Biden Administration, intended for technology companies to help mitigate the growing threat of cyberinfrastructure intrusions from hostile actors. Recent high-profile cyber-attacks in key industries have caused the White House to issue this guidance, with direct implications for any vendor of software and software infrastructures. This statement outlines that vendors should invest and implement automated tools to check for vulnerabilities in their source code products, as part of the “minimum standards for vendors’ testing of their software source code”.
