Security programming of web applications (SEAL)

Type: National Project

Duration: from 2018 Aug 01 to 2021 Jul 31

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: FCiências.ID - Associação para a Investigação e Desenvolvimento de Ciências (Other)

The Seal project aims to make significant advances in security of web applications, developing the SEAL platform containing tools that implement secure programming in application written in server-side programming languages (e.g. PHP and .NET). The platform will be constituted by three layers, namely, code representation, vulnerability detection, and code correction, where an intermediate language able to present server-side languages and secure code features will be defined on this language tools to perform code analysis to detect and identify vulnerabilities will be developed employing code analysis and machine learning techniques and a secure code layer to remove the vulnerabilities found automatically will be created. The SEAL platform during its development and evaluation will resort to use cases defined with the Maxdata enterprise, the market leader in software solutions to health services.
