In this webcast, Lori Flynn, a CERT senior software security researcher, describes the new features in SCALe v3, a research prototype tool. SCALe v2, available on GitHub, offers a subset of features available in SCALe v3. Over the last three years, as part of alert classification and prioritization research projects she has led, her team has added new features to the (privately released) 2015 version of SCALe (v1) that are intended to assist with automated static analysis alert classification and advanced alert prioritization. Flynn invites people in other organizations to collaborate with her team, including testing SCALe v3 and providing sanitized audit archives. Collaborators also might have an opportunity to become involved in developing a version of SCALe that would be usable in production, not just as a research prototype tool.
Lori Flynn is a Software Security Engineer at CERT, in the Software Engineering Institute of Carnegie Mellon University. Flynn's ongoing work includes the development of new secure coding rules and composable static analysis of apps to check for compliance with data flow rules on Android platforms. Past experience includes network security research, standards-based security analyses, and collaboration on a novel static analysis method for polymorphic program detection that resulted in a patent. Flynn’s Ph.D. research focused on secure multicast routing protocols for ad hoc mobile networks.
