Implement a disciplined, repeatable, and security-focused development process by incorporating application security measures into your design and coding processes

CERT® C and CERT® C++


The CERT® Secure Coding Standards for C and C++ are standards that provide rules and recommendations that target insecure coding practices and undefined behaviors that can lead to exploitable vulnerabilities.


Created by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) for Embedded Developers


The Software Engineering Institute is a research and development center primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.


The CERT Division at SEI is operated by Carnegie Mellon University and responsible for publishing these standards.


The CERT® C and C++ coding standards are the result of studying over 20 years of documented software vulnerability cases.

Tool Certification

SGS TUEV Saar Logo - Functional Safety approved - certified

QA-C and QA-C++  have been classified and certified by SGS-TÜV GmbH, an independent third party certification body for functional safety, accredited by Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS). Each tool has been classified with the highest  Tool Confidence Level, and is usable in development of safety related software to the highest integrity level of each if the certified standards.
