Outsmart Malicious Hackers


Codesake::Dawn is a source code scanner designed to review your code for security issues. Basically a static analysis security scanner for ruby written web applications.

Codesake::Dawn is able to scan your ruby standalone programs but its main usage is to deal with web applications. It supports applications written using majors MVC (Model View Controller) frameworks, like Ruby on Rails, Sinatra & Padrino.

When you run Codesake::Dawn on your code it parses your project Gemfile.lock looking for the gems used and it tries to detect the ruby interpreter version you are using or you declared in your ruby version management tool you like most (RVM, rbenv, …).
