Analyzing the dynamics of software vulnerability detection using a logistic curve

K.I. Netkachova
Annotations languages:

Security characteristics of different software products are analyzed and compared based on the data collected from public vulnerability databases. An approximation of the cumulative failure distribution by a logistic function is presented, the boundaries of different stages are outlined, which makes it possible to introduce a new metric, determine the current stage of the product and predict the vulnerability detection rate expected in the future.
Keywords: vulnerabilities, coefficient of vulnerabilities, logistic function, OTS components
