Findbugs has only primitive security checks. I am not aware of any other open source solutions. Options for commercial static analysis tools include:
- Fortify: www.fortify.com
- IBM (now including technology from the Ounce Labs acquisition) the product portfolio is often being reorganized, IBM's static analysis tools are somewhere under the Rational brand or you can find the Ounce Labs technology directly at www.ouncelabs.com
- Coverity Prevent: www.coverity.com
- Klocwork - offers an inexpensive tool for individual Java developers, Solo: www.klocwork.com
