Operating system security has always been a challenge for the users, developers and mainly administrators. Static analysis approach is widely used for detecting vulnerabilities within the code before the execution. C/C++ programming languages consist of highest number of vulnerabilities of which buffer overflow is the highest rated. Of all static analysis tools available none has enabled to detect all the vulnerabilities. Hence, the authors have proposed an integrated approach using two open-source static analysis tools: Flawfinder and Cppcheck for developing a new static analysis tool.
