Static Analysis Techniques and Tools: A Systematic Mapping Study

Static Analysis Techniques and Tools: A Systematic Mapping Study

Abstract

The main disadvantage of static analysis tools is their high false positive rates. False positives are errors that either do not exist or do not lead to serious software failures. Thus, the benefits of automated static analysis tools are reduced due to the need for manual interventions to assess true and false positive warnings. This paper presents a systematic mapping study to identify current state-of-the-art static analysis techniques and tools as well as the main approaches that have been developed to mitigate false positives.
