Abstract:

This is the final report for Code Pulse, a BAA project by Secure Decisions in the software assurance space. The original intent was to enhance static application security testing by introducing execution profiles of target applications to the vulnerability analysis process. However, as the concept was introduced to evaluators via prototypes, the feedback steered the project towards implementing a real-time code coverage tool for penetration testing activities. Code Pulse is an open source tool that provides a real-time white box perspective of coverage activity for penetration testers as they conduct their testing activities. This report details the activity for this project along with describing the evolution of the concept from original vision, to end state.
