Challenges in Scanning C/C++ Code for Dependencies

Presented by

Kit Martin

About this talk

C and C++ are amongst the most popular languages in the world. Designed for programming embedded, resource-constrained software and large systems, they are widely used because of their efficiency, stability and portability. But unlike other languages, C/C++ do not have standardized package management, which creates complexity in scanning and managing dependencies. During this webinar, Kit Martin, one of FOSSA's Software Engineers, will explore the complexities of scanning C/C++ code for dependencies. Topics will include: - How scanning for C/C++ differs from other managed languages - Various packaging scenarios in C/C++ - Challenges with C/C++ with vulnerabilities
