End-to-end security with GitLab

  • Application security testing and remediation. With every code commit, GitLab provides actionable vulnerability findings to developers while helping security pros manage remaining vulnerabilities through resolution.
  • Cloud Native Application Protection. GitLab Protect capabilities help you monitor and protect your Cloud Native production software environments.
  • Policy Compliance and Auditability. GitLab’s MR approvals, end-to-end transparency of who changed what, when, and where, along with a compliance dashboard and common controls help you meet your compliance needs.
  • SDLC Platform Security. See how we secure the GitLab software.

Continuous security testing capabilities

included within GitLab Ultimate

Static Application Security Testing (SAST)

  • Scan the application to spot potential vulnerabilities before code is merged.
  • Vulnerabilities are shown in-line with every merge request
  • All scan results are collected and presented as a single report.
  • Evaluate vulnerabilities from the GitLab pipeline and dismiss or create an issue with one click.

Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)

  • Dynamic scanning earlier in the SDLC than ever possible, by leveraging the review app CI/CD capability of GitLab.
  • Test running web applications for known runtime vulnerabilities.
  • Users can provide HTTP credentials to test private areas.
  • Vulnerabilities are shown in-line with every merge request.

Dependency Scanning

  • Analyze external dependencies (e.g. libraries like Ruby gems) for known vulnerabilities on each code commit with GitLab CI/CD.
  • Identify vulnerable dependencies needing updating.
  • Vulnerabilities are shown in-line with every merge request.

Container Scanning

  • Check Docker images for known vulnerabilities in the application environment.
  • Avoid redistribution of vulnerabilities via container images.
  • Vulnerabilities are shown in-line with every merge request.

License Compliance

  • Automatically search project dependencies for approved and unapproved licenses defined by your policies.
  • Custom license policies per project.
  • License analysis results are shown in-line for every merge request for immediate resolution.

Additional Capabilities

  • Auto Remediation: Auto remediation aims to automated vulnerability solution flow, and automatically create a fix. The fix is then tested, and if it passes all the tests already defined for the application, it is deployed to production.
  • Secret Detection: Prevent secrets from accidentally leaking into your Git history. Each commit is scanned for secrets within SAST.
  • Fuzz Testing: Fuzz testing acquisitions have been integrated alongside other scanners in the merge request pipeline. Apply this powerful technology to automatically test for unknown security flaws with coverage-guided fuzzing and API fuzzing

Why integration matters for DevSecOps

  • Every piece of code is tested upon commit for security threats, without incremental cost.
  • The developer can remediate now, while they are still working in that code, or create an issue with one click.
  • The security pro can see and manage unresolved vulnerabilities captured as a by-product of software development.
  • Single source of truth can focus collaboration on remediation, eliminating translation and finger pointing.
  • A single tool reduces cost to buy, integrate and maintain point solutions throughout the DevOps pipeline.
