CA Veracode Greenlight Free Trial

You never want to be the developer that wrote and submitted vulnerable code into production, especially if it leads to a data breach. Yet, in many organizations that have adopted DevOps practices, application security testing is shifting left into development. It’s far faster to catch and fix security flaws while you’re coding, than trying to go back and fix everything at the end of the process.... READ MORE

Risk of software components

Whenever there’s a major data breach announced in the news, I think about how there must be other breaches happening that we don’t even know about. Because, although cyberattackers frequently target known vulnerabilities in software, the victims are unlikely to know they were vulnerable until it is too late. As today’s software is increasingly assembled from bits and pieces of open source...

CA Veracode integrations make development's job easier

As software increasingly plays a critical role in how organizations conduct business, we are seeing two trends emerge: 1. Organizations want more software produced faster. 2. Cyberattackers are finding software a more attractive target. For developers, all the above means that their jobs are changing. The need to get software out the door faster has led to a shift to DevSecOps – where software is... READ MORE

How SQL injection happens

My name is Laurie Mercer, and I have introduced a security vulnerability into software. The year was 2004. As I travelled to work, Franz Ferdinand and The Killers blared on my cool new iPod. I was a developer, my first proper job after graduating with a degree in computer science and moving to the big city. Responsible for implementing functional changes, I would code new forms and business logic... READ MORE

Securing Web Apps in a DevOps World (Notes From Black Hat 2017)

DevOps at Black Hat

Zane Lackey of Signal Sciences spoke at Black Hat 2017 on a topic near and dear to my heart: Practical Tips for Defending Web Applications in the Age of DevOps. DevOps — and really, any Agile or Agile-like rapid software development approach — is a huge enabler for business. Changes to software are envisioned, implemented, tested, and deployed incredibly fast. Deployments can happen multiple... READ MORE

Cyberwar and Election Hacking

Let’s face it – cyberwar is no longer science fiction. Our economies – and our democratic system – are under attack. Security researchers are often reluctant to attribute attacks to particular nation states. But it’s become increasingly clear that Russia attempted to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and perhaps other elections in the UK and Europe. Last summer, Russia-backed hackers...

Updates to CA Veracode integrations

We are pleased to announce updates to the CA Veracode integrations to Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and Team Foundation Server (TFS), and to Visual Studio. The VSTS/TFS integration makes static and dynamic security findings available as work items in the VSTS/TFS issue tracker, and automatically updates the related defects when they are fixed or have approved mitigations. The... READ MORE

speed the dev process with CA Veracode integrations

Speed and security are the name of the game in software development today. Why? Because software is now key to innovation and competitive advantage for every enterprise in every industry. This means that not only is the pace of software development rapidly increasing, but also that attacks against the application layer are proliferating. In turn, software development speed and security are now... READ MORE

Security Can Be Complicated. Session Management Doesn’t Have To Be.

Simplify your approach to session management.

While performing a manual penetration test recently, I encountered a session management system that flew in the face of almost all the recommended security practices. Rather than use a pre-built implementation associated with a development framework, the developers had written one from scratch that, among other things: Generated session tokens based on the user ID and numeric counters. Appended... READ MORE
