This blog post addresses the high standards of security and compliance that we have to meet in every software project. Trained security engineers are responsible for ensuring that we achieve this within any given project. An especially persistent challenge they face is dealing with the countless dependencies present in software projects, and getting them – and their variety of versions – under control.
Application Security Tools: Use for Static Application Security Testing & Software Composition Analysis
Im Bereich der Application Security gibt es verschiedene Konzepte, um das Ziel zu erreichen, zuverlässige und sichere Software zu entwickeln. In diesem Beitrag werden das Static Application Security Testing (SAST) und die Software Composition Analysis (SCA) als wichtige Bestandteile der Application Security vorgestellt. Zur Umsetzung dieser Konzepte und Erhöhung der Application Security können entsprechende Tools eingesetzt werden.
