Program / static analysis (advanced)
GitHub is the home for software development, where developers collaborate to build some of the world’s most important software.
The security of that software is a collective problem, a responsibility that involves producers and consumers of code, open source maintainers, security researchers, and security teams.
At GitHub, we want to give the community the tools it needs to secure the software we all depend on.
CodeQL is one such tool : our semantic code analysis engine that lets you query code as though it were data. CodeQL combines the latest research in compiler optimization with insights in database implementation.
It understands the complex data structures inherent in code, and makes analysis available to researchers using a declarative, object-oriented query language.
You can write a query to find all variants of a vulnerability, eradicating it forever. Then share your query to help others do the same.
