Assure Third-Party Software Security When Source Code Isn’t Available

Binary SCA For Your Software Supply Chain 

CodeSentry is a Binary SCA solution that produces a SBoM without the need for source code. Binary SCA analyzes compiled code to identify open source components used by your vendors and suppliers then map them to the industry’s most complete and timely vulnerability and license database. 

The risk in supply chains is real. Recent examples include: 

  • A vulnerability in the popular Apache Log4j component allowed unauthenticated remote code execution and access to thousands of servers and products 
  • Heartbleed, a vulnerability in OpenSSL was first disclosed in 2014. Over six years later, the SANS Institute reported finding over 200,000 systems that were still using the vulnerable component. 
  • Ripple20 is a set of 19 vulnerabilities in the commercial version of the Treck TCP/IP stack with four vulnerabilities rated critical with CVSS scores over 9 that enable Remote Code Execution. These vulnerabilities impact devices from a wide variety of vendors, including HP, Schneider Electric, Intel, Rockwell Automation, Caterpillar, Baxter and many more across medical, industrial, transportation, oil and gas, and other industries. 

Evaluate Your Third and Fourth-Party Binaries

Understand Component Risk

Software development teams no longer have the luxury of long development cycles. Today’s world demands rapid release cycles to meet customers’ needs quickly. The adoption of open source greatly reduces development time, but also introduces risk from known vulnerabilities in those components. CodeSentry allows teams to identify open source components in third-party binaries and containers, including any used in commercial components licensed and used by the third-parties.  

Alleviate Need for Source Code Access

Analyze Legacy Code

CodeSentry identifies open source components in binaries. Source-based Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tools require source code to identify components and produce a Software Bill of Materials (SBoM). But source code isn’t always available, even for in-house projects. Commercial components and software built by vendors and partners are delivered as binaries. Code from the supply chain can comprise at least 25% of the final application. Identifying vulnerable components in these binaries is just as important to product security. 

Identify Security Weaknesses

Proactively Reduce Exposure

CodeSentry does more than just produce a Software Bill of Materials. By assessing binaries “as deployed”, CodeSentry can also teams to Zero-Day vulnerabilities resulting from poor security development practices including weak cryptography, use of potentially dangerous functions, insecure temporary files, and poor input validation. It also checks for misconfiguration of security features in compilers used by third parties providing binaries.
