Human progress is determined by the open supply group. One of many greatest points dealing with builders right this moment is find out how to create and eat open supply in a safe and trusted method. And at GitHub, we have now a novel alternative and duty to supply the instruments, greatest practices, and infrastructure to make software program growth safe.
At present we’re saying an enormous step in securing the open supply provide chain: we’re welcoming Semmle to GitHub.
Semmle’s revolutionary semantic code evaluation engine permits builders to put in writing queries that establish code patterns in massive codebases and seek for vulnerabilities and their variants. Semmle is trusted by safety groups at Uber, NASA, Microsoft, Google, and has helped discover 1000’s of vulnerabilities in a number of the largest codebases on the planet, in addition to over 100 CVEs in open supply initiatives up to now.
Safety researchers use Semmle to shortly discover vulnerabilities in code with easy declarative queries. These groups then share their queries with the Semmle group to enhance the security of code in different codebases. Software program safety is a group effort; no single firm can discover each vulnerability or safe the open supply provide chain behind everybody’s code. Semmle’s community-driven method to figuring out and stopping safety vulnerabilities is the easiest method ahead.
To be taught extra about our method to developer safety, try an in depth overview of safe growth on GitHub from Shanku Niyogi, SVP of Product. The Semmle weblog has many movies and examples of Semmle in motion, and you’ll try your favourite open supply initiatives on Semmle’s lgtm.com.
We’re so excited to be joined by the Semmle staff and to welcome their world class engineers and safety researchers to GitHub. Collectively, we’ll deliver their work to all open supply communities and to our prospects. As a group of builders, maintainers, and researchers, we are able to all work collectively towards safer software program for everybody.
