KDM — Lack of fidelity for advance flow analysis

  • Key: KDM-138
  • Legacy Issue Number: 10652
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Benchmark Consulting ( Alain Picard)
  • Summary:

    The current KDM allows for the representation of flow information through various action elements, but the current representation is too vague and lacks the full fidelity needed to provide detailed static analysis “grade” representations, especially when we are being asked to produce this in a standard compliant fashion. Currently, an action element is underspecified: it can be one statement, or more than one statement, or less than one statement. If it is too coarse grained, we are loosing precision regarding the semantics of the Reads and Writes and operations performed and access to complex data structures. What we need is either a finer-grained model or at least a specification that would standardize the way the current elements should be used in order to create a compliant KDM model with “instruction-level” fidelity. Maybe this new “micro-KDM” compliance point becomes part of the optional L1 categories, so that we at least can all agree and understand how to process this kind of information.
