Chris and Robert: A Taste of Hi-5

As the hosts of the Application Security Podcast, we get the opportunity from time to time to mix it up. This week we gather a few security articles, share a summary, and offer our opinions (for what our opinions are worth). The source of the articles is Hi-5,  a weekly newsletter containing five security articles that are worth your time. We scour the Interwebs looking for the best articles on application and product security and share those with you. You can subscribe to Hi-5 on the Security Journey website.

Hit us up on Twitter and let us know if you like this format and if we should do more of this type of content. We hope you enjoy this episode with, Chris and Robert.

These are the articles:

Brook Schoenfield — Security is a messy problem

Brook Schoenfield is a Master Security Architect @IOActive and author of Securing Systems, as well as an industry leader in security architecture and threat modeling, and a friend.

“We have a static analysis tool. Why do we need a program?” This is what Brook overheard at one point in his past, from a company CTO, and it sums up the program issue. The CTO was trying to drive a technical strategy for an entire company, and security was just one piece of that. A mandate or a tool would have made life so easy.

Brook takes us on a journey based on his experience building programs, with advice, stories, comments, and quotes. We talk about architecture, culture, mindset, tools, compilers and so much more.

Catch Brook’s next book, “Secrets of a Cyber Security Architect” which arrives in Fall 2019.

Here is Brook’s first book on Amazon: Securing Systems: Applied Security Architecture and Threat Models

Liran Tal — The state of open source software security

Liran Tal is a Developer Advocate @snyksec and is the author of Essential Node.js Security. He takes #opensource and protecting the #web very seriously.

Liran and I start by geeking out about BBS’s in the days of old. SYSOP page, anyone? Then we go into the state of open source security based on the report that Liran contributed heavily to and discuss many of the key takeaways from that report, including the developer response to open source security, security vulnerability rates in docker containers, and the length of time that vulnerabilities lie dormant in open source. We close out with the three things Liran would do to improve open source security if he could only do three things.

Steve Springett — An insiders checklist for Software Composition Analysis

Steve Springett is a technologist, husband, father, entrepreneur, and tequila aficionado. He is the creator of the OWASP @DependencyTrack and @CycloneDX_Spec. In this conversation, we begin with the problem of software supply chain risk and the failures of commercial Software Composition Analysis tools. We then go through an extensive list of criteria for purchasing a software composition analysis tool. I have never seen a list like this ever shared anywhere in the industry. Steve is definitely in the know when it comes to these types of tools, and this is a detailed checklist of what he looks for in a tool.  We end with a 60-second update on Dependency Track.
