FASTEN — Fine-Grained Analysis of Software Ecosystems as Networks

Funding Agency: EU H2020
Project type: RTD
Web site: https://www.fasten-project.eu/
Starting date: 2019-01-01
Ending date: 2021-12-31
Total budget: 3,219,697 euros

Description

The FASTEN project partners are developing an intelligent software package management systems that will enhance robustness and security in software ecosystems. The research and development activities include innovative ecosystem analysis techniques, with C, Java and Python applications. Derived techniques will tackle the problems of security and risk evaluation, license compliance and change impact analysis. Moreover, a back-end service and a knowledge base will host the results of those analyses while the integration of those analyses will reach the developer’s workflow and Continuous Integration (CI) tool chains.
