Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (#SARIF) V2.1.0 from the SARIF TC is an approved OASIS Committee Specification

OASIS is pleased to announce that Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (SARIF) Version 2.1.0 from the Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (SARIF) TC [1] has been approved as an OASIS Committee Specification.

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.

This Committee Specification is an OASIS deliverable, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.
