In 2012 alone, more than 5,000 defects were fixed in the Linux Kernel. This presentation will explore some of the most serious quality issues found through the Coverity Scan™ service, and how developers can use static analysis technology on their open source projects to build quality and security into their software development process.

The Coverity Scan service began as the largest public-private sector research project in the world, focused on open source software quality and security. Initiated in 2006 with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Coverity now owns and manages the project, providing its development testing technology as a free service to the open source community. The annual Coverity Scan Report will be published in May 2013.
