60-day Public Review for Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (SARIF) v2.1.0 COS01 - ends 18 February 2020

Members of the SARIF Technical Committee [1] have recently approved a Special Majority Ballot [2] to advance Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (SARIF) Version 2.1.0 as a Candidate OASIS Standard (COS). The COS now enters a 60-day public review period in preparation for a member ballot to consider its approval as an OASIS Standard.

Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (SARIF) Version 2.1.0
Candidate OASIS Standard 01
18 December 2019

Specification Overview:
Software developers use a variety of tools to assess the quality of their programs. These tools can report results on qualities such as validity, security, performance, compliance with legal requirements, etc. To form an overall picture of program quality, developers often need to aggregate the results produced by all of these tools, a task made difficult when each tool produces output in a different format.

SARIF defines a standard format for the output of static analysis tools in order to:
- Comprehensively capture the range of data produced by commonly used static analysis tools.
- Reduce the cost and complexity of aggregating the results of various analysis tools into common workflows.
- Represent analysis results for all kinds of programming artifacts, including source code and object code.

Three Statements of Use were received from Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP) Project, GrammaTech Inc., and Microsoft [3].

Public Review Period:

The 60-day public review starts 21 December 2019 at 00:00 UTC and ends 18 February 2020 at 23:59 UTC.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
