Therefore, tool effectiveness needs to be evaluated. Several characteristics of the tools should be examined. First, what types of bugs can they find? Second, what proportion of bugs do they report?  ...  Using the metrics, an evaluator can compare candidates and select the tool that aligns best with his or her objectives.  ...  Using solely synthetic test cases to assess a tool might therefore give an incomplete view of a tool's capabilities.

A Software Assurance Reference Dataset: Thousands of Programs With Known Bugs

Paul E. Black
2018 Journal of Research of the National Institute of Standards and Technology  
The Software Assurance Reference Dataset (SARD) is a growing collection of over 170 000 programs with precisely located bugs.  ...  Most are automatically generated synthetic programs, each a few pages of code long, but there are also over 7000 full-sized applications.  ...  Since most bugs are recorded in metadata, results can be evaluated semiautomatically, indicating the kinds of bugs that a tool fnds (and does not fnd) and a false positive rate.  ...
