Bay Area OWASP Meetup presentation

Video from the Bay Area OWASP Meetup on May 21

A big thanks to the Bay Area OWASP Meetup for inviting us to present at their “Hacker Days” event on May 22nd.

In this presentation we discuss a program analysis tool we’re developing called Semgrep (previously sgrep). It’s a multilingual semantic tool for writing security and correctness queries on source code (for Python, Java, Go, C, and JavaScript) with a simple “grep-like” interface. The original author, Yoann Padioleau, worked on Semgrep’s predecessor, Coccinelle, for Linux kernel refactoring, and later developed Semgrep (then sgrep) while at Facebook. He’s now full time with us at r2c.

Here’s the video of the presentation and you can also download the slides.

Semgrep lets security teams partner with developers and shift left organically, without introducing friction. Semgrep gives security teams confidence that they are only surfacing true, actionable issues to developers, and makes it easy for developers to fix these issues in their existing environments.

Find and fix the issues that matter before build time

Semgrep helps organizations shift left without the developer productivity tax.
