Abstract: Software trustworthiness has become one of the prominent studies in software quality assurance, in which the trustworthiness measurement is the primary topic. Compared with the method to evaluate the software development process, we measure to what extent the entity of software better fits users’ requirement. In this paper, we propose a bottom-up method of software trustworthiness measurement based on the source code. First, for the trustworthiness measurement of attributes, a comprehensive model is proposed. Second, the validity and stability of the model are verified by Monte Carlo simulation. Finally, the proposed method is developed based on the open source static detection tool for Cppcheck, which forms the software trustworthiness static measurement tool for TSMT.
