Forecasting Field Defect Rates Using a Combined Time-Based and Metrics-Based Approach: A Case Study of OpenBSD

Paul Luo Li, J. Herbsleb, M. Shaw
16th IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE'05)  
In this paper, we present an empirical case study of ten releases of OpenBSD.  ...  We identify the SRGM that produces the most accurate forecasts and subjectively determine the preferred metrics-based prediction method and set of predictors.  ...  We would like to thank the developers of OpenBSD for their insight and tool vendors who gave us trial licenses.  ...

Which is the right source for vulnerability studies?

Fabio Massacci, Viet Hung Nguyen
2010 Proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Security Measurements and Metrics - MetriSec '10  
Recent years have seen a trend towards the notion of quantitative security assessment and the use of empirical methods to analyze or predict vulnerable components.  ...  In our work, we focus on a more fundamental question: the quality of vulnerability database. We provide an analytical comparison of different security metric papers and the relative data sources.  ...  [29] build a logistic regression model to predict post-release defects of Eclipse using several metrics on different levels of code base i.e., methods, classes, files and packages.  ...

OS diversity for intrusion tolerance: Myth or reality?

Miguel Garcia, Alysson Bessani, Ilir Gashi, Nuno Neves, Rafael Obelheiro
2011 2011 IEEE/IFIP 41st International Conference on Dependable Systems & Networks (DSN)  
One of the key benefits of using intrusion-tolerant systems is the possibility of ensuring correct behavior in the presence of attacks and intrusions.  ...  We found this number to be low for several combinations of OSes.  ...  Ilir Gashi is supported by a Strategic Development Fund (SDF) grant from City University London.  ...

A descriptive process model for open-source software development [article]

Kim Johnson, University Of Calgary, University Of Calgary, Robert Kremer
Abstract Open Source is a term used to describe a tradition of open standards, shared source code, and collaborative software development.  ...  My appreciation and respect to those who have pioneered open-source software development. It is a truly unique approach and a fascinating area for research.  ...  Defects per thousand deltas (KDelta) is used to handle the problem of bloated code (considered bad but with an artificially low defect rate). 4? earlier reduction of errors.  ...
