The SEAL (SEcurity progrAmming of web appLications) project aims to make significant advances in security of web applications, developing the SEAL platform containing tools that implement secure programming in applications written in server-side programming languages (e.g., PHP and Java).

The platform will be constituted by three layers, namely, code representation, vulnerability detection, and code correction, where: an intermediate language able to represent server-side languages and secure code features will be defined; on this language, tools to perform code analysis to detect and identify vulnerabilities will be developed, employing code analysis and machine learning techniques; and a secure code layer to remove the vulnerabilities found automatically will be created. The SEAL platform, during its development and evaluation, will resort to use cases defined with the Maxdata enterprise, the market leader in software solutions to health services.
