Secure coding is very important in software development to ensure code security is high using techniques such as static analysis, code auditing and dynamic analysis to ensure safe coding practices are followed.
What Tools can be used for Secure Coding?
There are a variety of tools to ensure code safety, mostly based on source code auditing and static analysis.
The options available really depend on the language being used with some tools focusing on many languages such as Yasca – Multi-Language Static Analysis Toolset or specialist tools focusing on a single language like Brakeman – Static Analysis Rails Security Scanner.
Views: 2,788 pyrasite is a Python-based toolkit to inject code into running Python processes. pyrasite works with Python 2.4 and newer. Injection works between versions as well, so you can run Pyrasite under Python 3 and inject into 2, and vice versa. Usage
usage: pyrasite [-h] [--gdb-prefix GDB_PREFIX] [--verbose] [--output OUTPUT_TYPE] pid [filepath|payloadname]
pyrasite - inject code into a running python process
pid The ID of the process to inject code into
filepath|payloadname The second argument must be a path to a
file that will be sent as a payload to the
target process or it must be the name of
an existing payload (see --list-payloads).
-h, --help show this help message and exit
GDB prefix (if specified during installation)
--verbose Verbose mode
--output OUTPUT_TYPE This option controls where the output from
the executed payload will be printed. If
the value is 'procstreams' (the default) then
the output is sent to the stdout/stderr of the
process. If the value is 'localterm' then the
output is piped back and printed on the local
terminal where pyrasite is being run.
--list-payloads List payloads that are delivered by pyrasite
