1 AppSec USA 2014 Denver, Colorado OWASP A9: A Year Later Are you still using components with known vulnerabilities?

2 2 Our world runs on software, and software runs on open source components. For FOUR YEARS, we HAVE asked Those on the front lines — developers, architects, and managers, about how they're using Open source components, and how they're balancing the need for speed with the need for security. 3,353 THIS YEAR PEOPLE SHARED THEIR VIEWS

3 3 The TRUE State of OSS Security OSS POLICIES 56% have a policy and 68% follow policies. Top 3 challenges no enforcement/workaround are common, no security, not clear what’s expected PRACTICES 76% don’t have meaningful controls over what components are in their applications. 21% must prove use of secure components. 63% have incomplete view of license risk. COMPONENTS The Central Repository is used by 83%. Nexus component managers used 3-to-1 over others 84% of developers use Maven/Jar to build applications. STATE OF THE INDUSTRY Applications are the #1 attack vector leading to breach 13 billion open source component requests annually 11 million developers worldwide 90% of a typical application is is now open source components 46 million vulnerable open source components downloaded annually APP SECURITY 6 in 10 don’t track vulnerabilities over time. 77% have never banned a component. 31% suspected an open source breach.

4 4 Open source component use has exploded Source: 1 Sonatype, Inc. analysis of the (Maven) Central Repository; 2 IDC 13 BILLION OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE COMPONENT REQUESTS 2013 2012 2011 200920082007 2010 2B1B 500M 4B6B8B13B 11 MILLION DEVELOPERS WORLDWIDE 2 1

5 help build your applications Most applications are now assembled from hundreds of open source components…often reflecting as much as 90% of an application....and satisfy demand. Open source helps meet accelerated development demand required for these growth drivers. ASSEMBLED WRITTEN Open Source Software is essential

6 6 Q: Has your organization had a breach that can be attributed to a vulnerability in an open source component or dependency in the last 12 months? Heartbleed raises awareness

7 7 1-in-10 had or suspected an open source related breach in the past 12 months Not Uncommon (if you look)

8 8 Q: Has your organization ever banned use of an open source component, library or project? Yet, 78% have never banned an open source component, library or project. We Care (shhh don’t tell we don’t really)

9 9 More than 1-in-3 say their open source policy doesn’t cover security. Q: How does your open source policy address security vulnerabilities? Source: 2014 Sonatype Open Source Development and Application Security Survey Proof is in the Pudding

10 10 Even when component versions are updated 4-5 times a year to fix known security, license or quality issues 1. Q: Does someone actively monitor your components for changes in vulnerability data? But What About Developers …

11 11 Q: Does your organization maintain an inventory of open source components used in production applications? At Least it’s Good in Production?

12 12 Q: Who has responsibility for tracking & resolving newly discovered component vulnerabilities in *production* applications? In 2013, 50% Named AppDev In 2013, 8% Named AppSec Which Way are the Fingers Pointing?


14 14 Q: Does your organization have an open source policy? We Don’t Need No Stinking Policy!

15 15 Q: Do you actually follow your company’s open source policy? We Have a Policy, mmm Bacon

16 16 Is an “Open Source Policy” more than just a document? Q: How well does your organization control which components are used in development projects? Policy Without Controls Is?

17 17 But control is not unanimous. Q: Who in your organization has PRIMARY responsibility for open source policy/governance? Don’t Worry We Got It

18 18 Q: How would you characterize your developers’ interest in application security? Source: 2013 and 2014 Sonatype Open Source Development and Application Security Survey But do I Care?

19 It’s the Applications STupid

20 20 Q : When selecting components, which characteristics would be most helpful to you? (choose four) Source: 2014 Sonatype Open Source Development and Application Security Survey Hey if it Works … Ship It!

21 21 Q: What application security training is available to you? (multiple selections possible) This Security Thing is Such a Drag … Bacon

22 22 Application development runs at Agile & DevOps speed. Is security is keeping pace? Q: At what point in the development process does your organization perform application security analysis? Q: (multiple selections possible) Cleanup on Aisle 9


24 24 Yet, licensing data is considered helpful to 67% of respondents when selecting open source components to use. Q: Are open source licensing risks or liabilities a top concern in your position? You Mean Licenses Matter?

25 25 Q: Does your organization/policy manage the use of components by license types? (e.g., GPL, copyleft)? Why Yes, I Believe it Does
