Application Security

xGitGuard

xGitGuard is an AI-based tool designed to help developers and contributors detect sensitive information, such as user credentials and API tokens, in code that is being posted to GitHub. The goal is to ensure that an organization's tokens and other confidential information are not publicly exposed on GitHub when pushing code into the repository.

Key feature/capability: "xGitGuard takes advantage of a new text-processing algorithm that can find secrets within files with a high level of accuracy."

Threagile

Threagile is an agile, developer-friendly open source tool for doing threat modeling from within the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The goal is to help development organizations quickly capture the risk inherent within agile projects and to ensure that key security considerations are not overlooked.

Key feature/capability: "The open source Threagile toolkit can be executed as a simple docker container and runs either as a command line tool or a full-fledged server with a REST-API."
