Software Assurance MarketPlace (SWAMP)

The Software Assurance Marketplace is committed to bringing a transformative change to the national software assurance landscape by providing a national marketplace that provides continuous software assurance capabilities to researchers and developers. By providing software assurance researchers, tool developers, tool users, and educators who train our workforce a suite of secure and dependable analysis services, the Software Assurance Marketplace will reduce the number of vulnerabilities deployed in software.

Researchers who develop new software assurance tools and methodologies will use the repositories and cyberinfrastructure offered by the marketplace to improve their technologies and tools, while software developers and adopters will use the same services to hunt for vulnerabilities in their software. Educators will use these services to offer hands-on experience in software assurance techniques to their students.

By facilitating the sharing of tools, techniques, information, experiences and resources, the Software Assurance Marketplace will:

  • Help advance the quality and adoption rate of software assurance tools
  • Lower the threshold for using them
  • Make it easier to interpret and use the resulting output.
