Docker provides a completely open platform for developing distributed applications. Customers turn to Docker to build, run, and deploy, portable cloud ready applications. Docker is a tool that can package an application and its dependencies in a virtual container that can run on any Linux server. Docker uses the resource isolation features of the Linux kernel such as groups and kernel name spaces, and a union-capable file system such as aufs and others to allow independent "containers" to run within a single Linux instance, avoiding the overhead of starting and maintaining virtual machines.
Chef is a powerful automation platform that transforms complex infrastructure into code, bringing your servers and services to life. Whether you’re operating in the cloud, on-premises, or a hybrid, Chef automates how applications are configured, deployed, and managed across your network, no matter its size.
Chef is built around simple concepts: achieving desired state, centralized modeling of IT infrastructure, and resource primitives that serve as building blocks. These concepts enable you to quickly manage any infrastructure with Chef. These very same concepts allow Chef to handle the most difficult infrastructure challenges on the planet. Anything that can run the chef-client can be managed by Chef.
It's not easy being in IT operations today. The volume and complexity of infrastructure you manage is growing and getting smarter. On top of that, you've got demands from the business to do more and faster, without sacrificing security and reliability. How do you strike that balance?
With Puppet, you define the state of your IT infrastructure, and Puppet automatically enforces the desired state. Puppet automates every step of the software delivery process, from provisioning of physical and virtual machines to orchestration and reporting; from early-stage code development through testing, production release and updates.
Static Code Analysis is a technique employed in software development for checking on the source code without giving any external inputs to the code. The code is checked out for defects caused due to programming errors which can cause a security issue or a complete crash of the code during it’s actual execution.
It is to be noted that “Static Code Analysis” is normally taken up with the help of some automated tool which helps to do a complete branch coverage and path coverage, making it sure that all the parts of the software is checked on before the code is pushed to the next stage.
Statically the code can be checked in terms of security vulnerabilities, architectural flaws and compliance to some specific coding standards. Specialized software tools are available to take up these checks and certification is also given by these tool vendors to certify the software accordingly.
KlocworkTM is a niche Static Code Analyser tool which is capable of finding critical security vulnerabilities, checking on reliability issues of the software and checking on whether a particular coding standard like MISRA, DO-178C, CWE, DISA STIG, CERT, OWASP on C, C++, Java and C# codes.
KlocworkTM is also having the capability of taking up some levels of code refactoring for the C, C++ codes. It has a very well defined online peer code review portal which can help development teams to trigger a code review at any point in time during the development phase. This code review process is very effective as it is aimed at not finding out the coding defects and security vulnerabilities but to find ways to resolve them and to address some more innovative ways to tackle functional problems.

In software development, obfuscation is the deliberate act of creating obfuscated code, i.e. source or machine code that is difficult for humans to understand. Like obfuscation in natural language, it may use needlessly roundabout expressions to compose statements
Programmers may deliberately obfuscate code to conceal its purpose (security through obscurity) or its logic, in order to prevent tampering, deter reverse engineering, or as a puzzle or recreational challenge for someone reading the source code.
Programs known as obfuscators transform readable code into obfuscated code using various techniques.
Dotfuscator is a post-development recompilation system for .NET applications developed by PreEmptive Solutions. It analyzes applications and supposedly makes them smaller, faster and harder to reverse-engineer.

No code analysis is complete without testing. Testing of software is taken up by various ways and software is tested at various stages of development. Software testing is an investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of the product or service under test. Software testing can also provide an objective, independent view of the software to allow the business to appreciate and understand the risks of software implementation. Test techniques include the process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding software bugs (errors or other defects).
Software testing involves the execution of a software component or system component to evaluate one or more properties of interest. In general, these properties indicate the extent to which the component or system under test:
As the number of possible tests for even simple software components is practically infinite, all software testing uses some strategy to select tests that are feasible for the available time and resources. As a result, software testing typically (but not exclusively) attempts to execute a program or application with the intent of finding software bugs (errors or other defects). The job of testing is an iterative process as when one bug is fixed, it can illuminate other, deeper bugs, or can even create new ones.
Meteonic is partnered with some niche software testing tool companies across globe bringing the all important testing solutions for clients.

SuperTest – compiler testing for safety-critical automotive applications
Ensuring compiler and software quality
When one of Germany’s leading car manufacturers made the decision to use a new embedded processor in future production cars, it was of paramount importance that the compiler was validated and qualified under as stringent conditions as possible and required by ISO 26262.
Although the supplied compiler had already been validated by the compiler developer, additional testing was deemed necessary in order to guarantee that the target application code would compile without introducing execution errors. The safety-critical nature of automotive systems such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC) means that the embedded software needs to be 100% deterministic, not only in terms of its decision making but also in terms of its real-time performance. Eliminating errors introduced by the compilation process itself is a major factor in achieving these requirements.
SuperTest – reducing the risk in safety-critical automotive applications
It’s not only compiler developers who need to think about compiler validation. Software developers who require proof that their application code compiles without errors also need to think about it – especially when their applications are safety critical.
Re-using existing source code that you know compiles and runs flawlessly is one of the best ways to maintain software and product quality, but whenever you introduce a new product range it’s inevitable that you have to generate some new source code that may expose compiler errors. Even the individual code styles used by different software developers can expose problems with the compiler. However, potential problems aren’t confined to new code generation.
“Every time we receive a new version of a compiler, we need to check that the compiled code matches that produced by the earlier version. In the past, we did it by manual comparison at assembler level or by functional testing, but either way it took a lot of time and effort, and the results were often not repeatable. The same applies when we need to check compiler accuracy after switching between different C-language or CPU variants.” says Mitsuhiro Tani, Manager, Basic Software Eng. Div. DENSO Corporation in Japan,
SuperTest not only allowed to speed up and automate the process of identifying differences between compiler versions and validating language or CPU variants, it also allowed the company to build its own unique test requirements into the process.
Compiler suppliers validate their compilers using test suites that reflect typical use cases, but that doesn’t mean that every possible compiler option is covered. SuperTest gives the flexibility to configure own use cases and add own test suites, so software developers are able to leverage their in-house knowledge and add specific test cases that are critical to each application.
Because SuperTest is updated on a regular basis, SuperTest will be useful when software developers have to start using and verifying library code. Typical compiler errors detected by using SuperTest include the operation of Mathematical Functions that is not compatible with C language standard, inconsistencies between different compiler versions, inconsistent library operation between compilers, and so on.
“Since these compiler problems and errors can be detected before the product development and shipment, DENSO can significantly reduce the effort of updating. We believe that SuperTest has turned out to be a good investment for the company. ” says Hiroki Nakasato, Assistant Manager, Basic Software Eng. Div. DENSO Corporation,
The volume of test suites that are included in SuperTest and code samples that detect a range of potential compiler errors makes it very cost-effective. The fact that software developers can separate tests in a quick and effective way gives the test flexibility need to identify and locate bugs. Add to that the fact that a standard compliance check for a compiler takes less than 1 to 2 days to run and SuperTest saves a lot of time and money.
For companies with a very high reputation to maintain and strict automotive safety standards to meet, compiler quality will always be an issue. SuperTest’s ability to achieve the confidence levels needed to use compiler into safety-critical automotive applications has now won it a permanent place in the arsenal of software development tools.
