Agnitio V2.0 Released €? Code Security Review Tool

A tool to help developers and security professionals conduct manual security code reviews in a consistent and repeatable way. Agnitio aims to replace the adhoc nature of manual security code review documentation, create an audit trail and reporting.

Agnitio v2.0 Released – Code Security Review Tool

Widely regarded as one of the best automated code review tools available in the market. SonarQube has thousands of automated Static Code Analysis rules. SonarQube also supports 27 languages which are a mix of both modern and legacy so that SonarQube can cover your entire project and its continuous development.

Secrets detection is often confused with SAST because both scan through source code. Unlike SAST, which is concerned only with the current version of an application, secrets detection is concerned with the entire history of the project. Version control systems such as git, keep track and store all changes to a project. If previous versions of source code contains hard-coded secrets within, that were removed in late stages, code reviews and SAST tools will miss these secrets which may end up in a git repository and become compromised. This is why secrets detection is a category on its own.

Any tool that reads the source code, parses it, and suggests improvements is a static code analyzer. There are many tools that fall under the umbrella term of static code analyzers, from linters and formatters to vulnerability scanners and PR reviewers. Let's go over the main reasons why you should use these in your workflow.

But what's better than one person reviewing your code? How about every open-source developer reviewing it! Static analyzers are powered by a vast library of open-source rules, which means that everyone who has contributed to the tool has indirectly reviewed your code. This makes it very hard to find subtle bugs that a couple of human reviewers could miss, to slip by.

People make mistakes. Only 15% of codebases that install JSHint, a popular code-review tool for JavaScript, pass without issues. That just goes to show how vital it is to have some computer eyes review your code as well.

Visual Studio Code provides developers with a new choice of developer tool that combines the simplicity and streamlined experience of a code editor with the best of what developers need for their core code-edit-debug cycle. Visual Studio Code is the first code editor, and first cross-platform development tool - supporting OSX, Linux, and Windows - in the Visual Studio family.\r\n\r\nAt its heart, Visual Studio Code features a powerful, fast code editor great for day-to-day use. The Preview release of Code already has many of the features developers need in a code and text editor, including navigation, keyboard support with customizable bindings, syntax highlighting, bracket matching, auto indentation, and snippets, with support for dozens of languages.

For serious coding, developers often need to work with code as more than just text. Visual Studio Code includes built-in support for always-on IntelliSense code completion, richer semantic code understanding and navigation, and code refactoring. In the Preview, Code includes enriched built-in support for ASP.NET 5 development with C#, and Node.js development with TypeScript and JavaScript, powered by the same underlying technologies that drive Visual Studio. Code includes great tooling for web technologies such as HTML, CSS, LESS, SASS, and JSON. Code also integrates with package managers and repositories, and builds and other common tasks to make everyday workflows faster. And Code understands Git, and delivers great Git workflows and source diffs integrated with the editor.

We are, of course, still very early with Visual Studio Code. If you prefer a code editor-centric development tool, or are building cross-platform web and cloud applications, we invite you to try out the Visual Studio Code Preview, and let us know what you think!\r\n\r\n

Windows Phone 7 is the latest mobile operating system from Microsoft and is the youngest of all the major smartphone operating systems. Since it was released in late 2010 it has gained a small share of the smartphone market but this is likely to increase significantly with Nokia now using it as the OS for their flagship models. The young age of the OS and the small market share size means there has been very little security research carried out against this platform so far. This means that developers and security professionals are working with this platform without a detailed understanding of the security features and potential shortcomings. Security should be part of the DNA of any application which stores or transmits sensitive data but how many of the developers with published applications understand common mobile application security vulnerabilities and more importantly how many know how to prevent them in their own applications? This presentation will detail the security features of Windows Phone 7 with an emphasis on how developers can produce Windows Phone 7 apps that are free from common mobile application security vulnerabilities. This talk will start by looking at why we should care about mobile security, what the implications are for developers and security professionals and how mobile manufacturers and network operators are now a big part of your threat models and how their approach to security could undermine your application security efforts. I will then focus on the security model and features of Windows Phone 7 and how these features compare to those found in the iOS and Android operating systems. The final part of this talk will focus on the types of vulnerabilities seen in mobile applications over the past few years and how developers can ensure their Windows Phone 7 apps are free from these vulnerabilities. This will include reviews of insecure and secure code samples from real world applications. This talk will arm developers and security professionals with an understanding of the Windows Phone 7 security features and the guidance they need to produce secure Windows Phone 7 apps.This talk will include demonstrations of Windows Phone 7 security tools that I'm developing such as the Windows Phone App Analyser.

David Rook is the Application Security Lead at Realex Payments in Dublin. He is a contributor to several OWASP projects including the code review guide and the Cryptographic Storage Cheat Sheet. He has presented at leading information security conferences including DEF CON, BlackHat USA and RSA Europe. In addition to his work with OWASP David created a security resource website and blog called Security Ninja. The Security Ninja blog was nominated for five awards including the best technology blog at the Irish Blog Awards, the Computer Weekly IT Security blog award and was a finalist for the Irish Web Awards Best Technology Site. In 2011 David received a Developer Security MVP award from Microsoft. David strives to practice what he preaches and has backed up his work experience by developing an open source security code review tool called Agnitio and publishing several Windows Phone 7 applications.

This talk will present technical security challenges faced by organizations that have SCADA, critical infrastructure or industrial control systems installations. It will provide examples of attacks and examples of security controls for the same. The talk will introduce an open-source tool to help identify and inventory SCADA systems. The presentation will begin by introducing SCADA systems under the hood including RTU, IED, PLC, FEP, PCS, DCS, HMI, sensors, data historians and other SCADA components. The presenter will categories these components into distinct groups based on the functionality that each component provides. The presenter will review the security implications on each of these groups and identify where most of the threats lie. The presentation will take a packet level dive into SCADA protocols like MODBUS and DNP3 and study their security implications. The presentation will give example of attacks that can be carried out against each group and component. The presenter will release an updated version of an open-source tool to identify and inventory SCADA systems using the protocols discussed in this presentation. The presenter will then focus on real world examples of successful and not-so-successful implementations of security controls with SCADA systems. This will include examples of what some large organizations have done, and a discussion about why SCADA security cannot be deciphered just by tools or technical solution. The presentation will conclude with guidance on how control system owners can start implementing additional measures to get to an acceptable security. Attendees who are in charge of control system infrastructure will get insight on what worked and what did not for other organizations. Engineers who are in-charge of security for control systems will get a better technical insight of SCADA protocols and components and can use the open source tool that is introduced. Attendees who are new to control systems will get an excellent overview of security complexities of control systems. 076b4e4f54
