Specifiable automated detection of API misuse in CI pipelines

The correct use of APIs is crucial to avoid erroneous and insecure code. Cryptographic APIs are particularly important for data security, but general (all other) APIs must be used correctly to develop secure, high-quality software. To check the secure and correct use of APIs, static analysis tools are used in practice.The "Secure Software ...
