Test Your Microservices For Vulnerabilities
Whether you are developing Microservices or Crashtest Security Suite can help you detect vulnerabilities.
- Microservices test automation tool to reduce manual pentests. Embed it into your dev process easily.
- Clean interface for the best user experience
- Set up your continuous security pipeline to build and deploy a secure microservices application.
Microservices scanner features
Continuous Security combines Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery with source control monitoring and dependent checking to guarantee that CI/CD pipelines are examined. Crashtest Security Suite is created to scan Microservices and APIs for vulnerabilities automatically.
Create and verify your scan target.
Configure the credentials for the system and the application.
Create a webhook and start a scan via the CI Integration.
Integrate a chat notification system (Slack, Mattermost, Hangouts, and many more.)
Download the report
Get reports with remediation guidance, risk assessments, and solutions for every vulnerability discovered.
Microservice security testing benefits
- Categorized downloadable reports – You get them in PDF, JSON/XML, and CSV formats with a checklist to mark what has been solved.
- CI/CD integration to run scans before every release and ensure vulnerabilities are remediated before ever affecting your customers.
- Third-party components scans to identify your security posture.
- A SaaS-based solution to scale your security testing methodology.
Get vulnerability reports with findings, classifications (by risk level), remedial guidance for XSS, CSRF, code injection, and every vulnerability in OWASP Top 10 List.
We also attach a link to our dedicated wiki article to each finding, so you don’t have to google how to fix the vulnerability anymore.
What is microservices security test?
Hackers can take advantage of locations covered by the microservices umbrella. As a result, programmers must properly verify microservices to ensure that they are resistant to security holes.
Crashtest Security’s dynamic application security testing tool searches for security flaws, allowing developers to rectify them.
Note: It’s important that you own and have the permissions to set the microservices vulnerability test. It can generate different HTTP Requests that can be considered attacks (even if they are entirely inoffensive), so consider that you need the authorization to run this scanner.
How do we test the microservice security?
The security tool scans a microservice with maximum of 10 endpoints (documented with Swagger or OpenAPI files). It parses the microservice specification file and scans each endpoint written in it.
In the end, it lists all findings in an extensive report, classifies them, and provides advice on how to fix them.
Why should I start a microservice vulnerability test?
According to security experts, microservices are four times more insecure than traditional monolithic programs. Furthermore, each service API and network layer present vulnerable entry points to potential new threat vectors due to their dispersed nature.
When opposed to a monolithic framework, microservices are orchestrated using various technologies. Pre-built repositories, open-source code, and containers with/without approved security procedures are commonly used in such systems. Implementing a security policy becomes more difficult due to the widespread use of unpatched third-party libraries within each container, raising the total risk.
As microservices are inherently containerized apps, a single hacked container allows attack vectors to propagate the breach across a larger surface swiftly.
What are microservices architectures?
Microservice Architecture, often known as microservices in cybersecurity, is a collection of organized services used to build an application. Microservices are becoming increasingly popular among development teams. Why? It allows for continuous delivery of huge applications and readily adjusts to the company’s demands as technology changes and expands with minimum effort.
What are the best practices to ensure microservices?
- Securing Access Points with OAUTH2 and OpenID Connect. Security experts propose using OAuth2 and OpenID Connect to transfer permission management to a third party or a single (internal) authentication service rather than starting from scratch.
- Use Defence in-depth. “Defense in depth” is described as “a notion of securing data in which many levels of security measures (defensive line) are deployed across an information technology infrastructure.”
- Don’t write your crypto code. You should only roll out new solutions and algorithms if you have compelling and precise reasons.
Get your containers out of the public network.
What are the risks of API vulnerabilities?
APIs are typical objectives for stealing sensitive information, such as application logic, login credentials, credit card details, and so on, due to their general easy accessibility. Cybercriminals could also use API endpoint vulnerabilities to obtain unauthorized access to a system or network for other threats, including XSS attacks and code injections.
