Weekly Check-In #3

Published: 06/22/2021

What did you do this week?

This week I automated the file extraction process and the strings finding process from the ELF binary files. After this was done, I began testing it against various packages(for whom the checkers already exist) to confirm that the tool works as expected before moving forward to make the output a bit pretty :) I also iterated over the vendor-product finding process to deal with some corner cases.

What is coming up next?

In the upcoming week, I plan on making the output a bit pretty and test it against various packages to find any corner-cases or bugs. I also plan on writing the tests and the documentation for the same.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Again, I had small doubts here and there, but my mentors helped me to overcome them easily :)
