"As of today, software developers know only the part names of the software they are using, but they have little idea how all these fit and work together. If some part has a security vulnerability or other bug and gets fixed, they don’t know if they need to update it or not. Updating it can be expensive, but failing to update it can result in failures. FASTEN is solving this issue by providing a detailed map of how open source software components fit and work together, called a call graph".

"Today there are really large ecosystems of software libraries that power our software development industry: virtually no software is developed without using some third-party libraries. The end goal of FASTEN is to enhance the control that application developers have over properties and risks of software libraries they use, powered by a deep analysis of the inner workings of these libraries."
