• IAST: Runtime Code & Data Security Analysis – Beyond SAST/DAST - Ofer Maor

We present IAST, a new approach, analysing code execution, memory and data in runtime, allowing for accurate inspection of the application. The presentation will present the basic IAST technology building blocks and their benefits, followed by discussing advanced IAST data analysis capabilities, which allow for a deeper analysis of the application and its business logic. We will discusses different approaches and implementations of IAST and Runtime code analysis, discussing the benefits of each. The presentation will include practical samples (including code!) of how IAST can be used to accurately detect both simple and complicated vulnerabilities, including SQL Injection, Parameter Tampering, Persistent XSS, CSRF, and more…
