OK I do not often post developer tools from Microsoft, but the name of the tool sounds so cool and so much beter than MS Marketing normally does, I couldn’t resist Hot smile “BinScope Binary Analyzer”!

BinScope is a Microsoft verification tool that analyzes binaries on a project-wide level to ensure that they have been built in compliance with Microsoft’s Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) requirements and recommendations.

BinScope checks that SDL-required compiler/linker flags are being set, strong-named assemblies are in use, up-to-date build tools are in place, and the latest good ATL headers are being used. BinScope also reports on dangerous constructs that are prohibited by SDL
