Project RIPS v0.54 – Status

February 1, 2013

I just updated RIPS and fixed some JavaScript errors that came up due to the latest browser updates (thank you for the reports). You can download it here. Now the code viewer and other window features should work again. At the same time I am announcing that the current version of RIPS will not be enhanced. The current engine does not allow further enhancement and suffers from bad language parsing. This leads to an inacceptable rate of false positives. Further, the current engine can not be extended to support OOP.

The good news is that I have rewritten RIPS completely during the past 6 month during my final master thesis at the Ruhr-University Bochum. RIPS 1.0 now uses Abstract Syntax Trees, Control Flow Graphs, and Context-Sensitive String Analysis doing it the academic way ;). The result looks very promising, but its worthless to share any results/numbers without sharing the tool. It is still under development and a release date is unknown, but already in its current state it is way better than RIPS 0.5. In the end, full OOP support is planned. Any updates will be released here or via twitter.

The project continues … =)
