20:15 - 21:00 - DAST in the world of DevSecOps by Amit Sharma

SAST, DAST, IAST… xAST de-mystified


Dev[Sec]Ops has embraced CI/CD’s build, test and deployment approach, now pushing secure test automation into the dev’s build pipelines.
Now with SCA added to the xAST security verification in your pipeline, as more is better, right?
But, without clear expectation what to expect from your tool (usage), how to choose the right tool?
During this presentation, you will be guided to define the problem first, in order to choose the tools to solve it. Let’s grow maturity and not push on security test automation in the development pipelines but adding useful quality assurance in your production line!

20:15 - 21:00 - Unveiling the secrets in your code: Detecting and Triaging exposed credentials at scale by Ingmar Vis

Unveiling the secrets in your code: Detecting and Triaging exposed credentials at scale


Security misconfigurations are often easy to exploit but also easy to avoid. How can we raise security awareness and at the same time prevent security misconfigurations (such as leaked credentials) from reaching production? Is there an easy way to scan, triage and follow-up on exposed secrets at enterprise scale? ABN Amro open sourced Repository Scanner and runs Repository Scanner internally at scale, exposing secrets in source code repositories and thereby raising security awareness while at the same time improving the security posture by remediating security misconfigurations.

Ingmar Vis:

Ingmar Vis has been working in CICD for 7 years. In his current role, Ingmar acts as a Product Owner for 2 teams at ABN Amro. 1 team is responsible for delivering the Secure Coding capability for all developers, the 2nd team is responsible for the infrastructure and automation of CICD tooling. Ingmar works on aspects such as Static Analysis, Software Composition Analysis, Container Security, and Secret Detection.
