Welcome to the NIST Software Assurance Reference Dataset ProjectThe purpose of the Software Assurance Reference Dataset (SARD) is to provide users, researchers, and software security assurance tool developers with a set of known security flaws. This will allow end users to evaluate tools and tool developers to test their methods. These test cases are designs, source code, binaries, etc., i.e. from all the phases of the software life cycle. The dataset includes "wild" (production), "synthetic" (written to test or generated), and "academic" (from students) test cases. This database will also contain real software application with known bugs and vulnerabilities. The dataset intends to encompass a wide variety of possible vulnerabilities, languages, platforms, and compilers. The dataset is anticipated to become a large-scale effort, gathering test cases from many contributors. We have more information about the SARD, including goals, structure, test suite selection, etc.
