Seok-Won Lee, Robin A. Gandhi, Siddharth J. Wagle, Ajeet B. Murty
2007 15th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE 2007)  
Numerous interdependent quality requirements imposed by regulatory Certification and Accreditation (C&A) processes enable a rich context to gather compliance evidences for promoting software assurance.  ...  The goal of the r-AnalytiCA workbench is to make sense out of the large collection of available evidences for a complex software system though multidimensional requirements-driven problem domain analysis  ...  Goal-driven Scenario Composition Ongoing and Future work Currently, r-AnalytiCA has been applied in the domain of C&A processes for assessing software system security qualities [2] .  ...

Certification of Open Source Software – A Scoping Review [chapter]

Eirini Kalliamvakou, Jens Weber, Alessia Knauss
2016 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
There is an increasing interest in software certification as a means to assure quality and dependability of such systems.  ...  The distributed, "bazaar-style" approach to software development in OSS systems is often perceived incompatible with certification.  ...  Today, OSS development is considered mainly community-driven and sustained through the volunteers that create and maintain the software.  ...

Component Certification as a Prerequisite forWidespread OSS Reuse

George Kakarontzas, Panagiotis Katsaros, Ioannis Stamelos
2010 Electronic Communications of the EASST  
A prerequisite for promoting widespread reuse of OSS software is certification at the component level in an affordable cost.  ...  We discuss the requirements relating to OSS software reuse based on the findings of a survey.  ...  Certification is not driven by some standard that defines how compliance is enforced, but it is guided by a domain-specific OSS reuse de facto standard, which is the underlying typical architecture.  ...

Bio-Inspired Intelligent System for Software Quality Certification

Saad Mohamed Darwish
2016 Journal of Software  
However, building accurate certification model is hard due to the lack of data in the domain of software engineering.  ...  This research participates in solving the problem of evaluating software quality by proposing a model that uses a fuzzy inference engine to integrate both of the processes-driven and application-driven  ...  In the previous generation of software development, software quality is measured through static assessment of code's structure.  ...

IVVES (Industrial-Grade Verification and Validation of Evolving Systems)

Pekka Aho, Tanja E. J. Vos, Otto Sybrandi, Sorin Patrasoiu, Joona Oikarinen, Olivia Rodriguez Valdes, Lianne V. Hufkens
2022 Research Challenges in Information Science  
We summarise the results of the project at a high level, and provide more details on the research and collaboration related to scriptless end-to-end testing through graphical user interface.  ...  This introduces new challenges for verification, validation and software testing. The traditional way of testing the systems during the development and before the deployment does not suffice anymore.  ...  To conclude, IVVES will develop cross-domain solutions with broad applicability that will be the foundation for standardisation and certification.  ...

The Software Architect's Role in the Digital Age

Gregor Hohpe, Ipek Ozkaya, Uwe Zdun, Olaf Zimmermann
2016 IEEE Software  
This insight, coupled with the increasing demand for delivering high-quality software more quickly, has changed how development teams approach architectural decision making.  ...  TRADITIONALLY, SOFTWARE architects were entrusted with making "decisions that are costly to change." 1 Because these decisions often had to be made early in the project, architects drew on their experience  ...  Examples include the Software Engineering Institute's Professional Software Architecture Certificate (www.sei.cmu .edu/training/certificates/architecture/professional.cfm), IASA Software Architect Certification  ...
