Coverity, which creates automated source-code analysis tools, announced late Monday its first list of open-source projects that have been certified as free of security defects.
Eleven projects made the list: Amanda, NTP, OpenPAM, OpenVPN, Overdose, Perl, PHP, Postfix, Python, Samba, and TCL.
San Francisco-based Coverity, working in collaboration with Stanford University and under a contract from the Department of Homeland Security, is analyzing source code to certify that open-source projects written in C, C++, and Java are secure. Coverity has not disclosed the amount of the DHS contract.
