Abstract
Determine the feasibility of developing a system that can reliably and efficiently correlate and merge the results of open-source and commercial automated static and dynamic security scanning technologies, by creating common data structure standards for both automated static and dynamic security scanning results; research and prototype methods of matching the results of automated static and dynamic tools. The goal of Phase I will be to deliver a working prototype that can correlate and merge the results of open-source and commercial automated static and dynamic security scans of web applications. Initial commercialization plans for the results of this research involve integrating it with Denim Group's existing ThreadFix product: a software vulnerability aggregation and management system that helps organizations aggregate vulnerability data, generate virtual patches, and integrate with software defect tracking systems. It is commercialized using a common and tested "open source" business model where the base technology is made available for free under an open source software license. This will increase the adoption of the technology by allowing any organization access to the software without requiring licensing fees. However, organizations that require commercial support for their customized use of the technology can purchase support contracts. In addition, organizations that wish to customize or extend the functionality of the technology will be required to pay for access to these services. Future plans are to make the technology available under a cloud "software as a service" (SaaS) model removing the requirements of configuring, installing and maintaining their own systems.
