Dear Michael,


First of all, I apologise for my delayed answer. Secondly, I thank you for
supporting OWASP.


I have finally set up the requested project page. It was placed here
s> , can be accessed here
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Yasca_Project>  and edited
. Please feel free to change it as you find best. 


I also created a mailing list for your project. The subscription page it's
here <https://lists.owasp.org/mailman/listinfo/owasp-yasca-project> , the
mail address is owasp-yasca-project at lists.owasp.org and, by now, the
password must have been sent automatically to you.


I recommend writing here
about the plans that you have for your tool regarding future developments. 


I also suggest you contact the project leaders of the Yasca related projects
- Paolo Perego, Eoin Keary and Dan Cornell - to see if synergies between
these projects can be found out.


Please, don't hesitate to get back to me whenever you think that I can be of
any help.


Many thanks, best regards,


Paulo Coimbra,

OWASP Project Manager <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Main_Page>

Subject: New Static Analysis Tool - "Yasca"


Hi Paulo,


I've written a new static analysis tool and would like to include it among
the other OWASP projects. I've been involved with OWASP/NYC and plan to
submit a presentation for upcoming conferences. Here is my quick
introduction to Yasca. A PPT will be coming out soon. 




Yasca is a new static analysis tool designed to scan Java, C/C++,
JavaScript, .NET, and other source code for security and code-quality
issues. Yasca is easily extensible via a plugin-based architecture, so
scanning PHP, Ruby, or other languages is as simple as coming up with rules
or integrating external tools.


Yasca includes plugins for the following open-source projects:

     * FindBugs (http://findbugs.sourceforge.net/)

     * PMD (http://pmd.sourceforge.net/)

     * Jlint / antiC (http://artho.com/jlint/)


Yasca also features a simple regular-expression plugin that allows new rules
to be written in less than a minute. It includes many custom rules created
specifically for Yasca, and additional rule-packs will be released soon.


Yasca is hosted on SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/yasca) with
additional information at http://yasca.org.


Thank you,


Mike Scovetta
