Runtime-powered SAST: The Future of Application Security Testing

Runtime-powered SAST: The Future of Application Security Testing
Kodem Security's Runtime-Powered SAST introduces a groundbreaking approach, reshaping the application security landscape.

Securing Applications Demands more than Static Analysis

Kodem Security's Runtime-Powered SAST introduces a groundbreaking approach, reshaping the application security landscape. Let's delve into how this innovative SAST solution revolutionizes vulnerability detection and mitigation.

One Product for SCA, SAST, and Container Security

Kodem's SAST solution (Static application security testing or static analysis) integrates seamlessly into its existing platform, extending its Software Supply Chain Security (SCA) and Container Security capabilities. This provides a comprehensive security solution covering:

  • Human-Generated and AI-Generated Code: Automatically triage vulnerabilities across all code forms, including those written by developers and generated by AI.
  • Third-Party and Open-Source Packages: Monitor vulnerabilities from dependencies and libraries, ensuring every layer is secure.
  • Container Security: Constantly oversee the underlying container, providing end-to-end protection for the entire application stack.
Container Security: Constantly oversee the underlying container.

Why Kodem’s SAST Solution Excels and How it is Different 

We Pay Attention to Code, Build, OS and Memory

Kodem's SAST solution leverages runtime intelligence from the container, kernel, and memory to provide deep insights into the application stack. Application Security teams can know what vulnerabilities are loaded in runtime, contextualize relevance and impact, and confirm exploitability.

How  Kodem’s SAST Solution Works 

Three essential steps to utilize a runtime-powered SAST solution in complex applications built using various programming languages and frameworks.

1. Loaded in Runtime

Kodem's SAST solution actively monitors and analyzes the application's runtime environment, identifying vulnerabilities that are actively present and potentially exploitable during runtime. This real-time assessment enables proactive detection of security issues as they emerge within the running application.

2. Provides the Exact Line of Code and the Best Place to Fix

Beyond identifying vulnerabilities, Kodem's SAST solution contextualizes their relevance and potential impact by examining the application's codebase. This ensures that identified vulnerabilities are acknowledged and the specific line of code causing the vulnerability is also identified. In addition, source code samples are generated that developers can paste in to fix the vulnerable code.

3. Confirms the Vulnerability as Exploitable

Kodem's SAST solution employs a multifaceted approach to confirm exploitability. Fine-tuned Large Language Models (LLMs) are combined with real-time intelligence gathered from various sources, including memory, kernel (utilizing eBPF), and container environments. Simulating attack scenarios and thoroughly analyzing runtime behavior provide a robust confirmation of exploitability, empowering application security teams with actionable insights.
