SAFE Corporation Announces CodeScreener Online Software Plagiarism Detection

Software Analysis & Forensic Engineering Corporation has announced the release of CodeScreener, an online software service offering comparison of software source code or binary code. CodeScreener measures the correlation between two application programs, social network games, or mobile apps to identify plagiarism…

Michael Barr, president of Netrino commented, “As a certified CodeSuite user, I was excited about the introduction of CodeScreener. With the access and affordability of CodeScreener, I believe that more software developers will be able to determine if their software has been copied. CodeScreener will give developers an important tool to protect their intellectual property.”

CodeScreener uses SAFE’s patented, state-of-the-art CodeSuite® forensic software as the back-end analysis engine. SAFE’s years of experience serving software experts in IP litigation allowed them to create an easy-to-use service for detecting software plagiarism. CodeScreener currently supports 25 programming languages (listed in the table below) with more being added regularly. CodeScreener can compare source code or compiled object code.

Supported languages: ASM-M68k, BASIC, C, C++, C#, Delphi, Flash ActionScript, Fortran, FoxPro, Java, JavaScript, LISP, MASM, MATLAB, Pascal, Perl, PHP, PowerBuilder, Python, RealBasic, Ruby, SQL, Verilog, VHDL, and Visual Basic

CodeScreener includes a unique common-use filter option that uses Internet searches to eliminate correlation not caused by copying. The result is a clean report where any remaining correlation found warrants examination as potential copying.

“Since incorporating SAFE in 2007, we have seen a growing need for an online code screening solution that developers could use” said Bob Zeidman, president of SAFE Corporation. “The challenge was to provide a clean report that reduced false positives, typically the work of an expert. CodeScreener meets this challenge in an easy-to-use online service.”

Access to CodeScreener is available now at www.CodeScreener.com . Pricing is $100 per report.
