Featured (non-OWASP) Project: Security Through Scrutiny: Java Open Review Project

A joint project from the Findbugs group and Fortify Software is examining open source components for security and quality defects. The project, accessible at, allows participants to:

  • submit projects to be scanned with Findbugs and Fortify Source Code Analysis suite
  • help review potential defects through the online code review interface
  • keep track of project defects as they are uncovered and fixed by the open source community
  • receive tips on performing code reviews for security defects

The project is open to all Java open source projects and any person that wants to contribute, either through code reviews, project submissions, or project feedback. Current projects include: Tomcat, Jforums, Azureus, Nuxeo, Spring, Struts, select OWASP projects, and more!

People are encouraged to visit the site: for more details or stop by the Fortify/Findbugs demo booth at JavaOne 2007. Project owners that are interested in being featured can email: openaudit <at> fortifysoftware <dot> com
