Easy integration with RIPS CLI Tool
Hook RIPS Anywhere
Today, fully automated application security testing is an important part of every secure development life cycle. Use our command line interface tool to easily automate important features of RIPS. With a single command, you can start a new scan, search specific issues, or retrieve a summary PDF report. Our CLI tool helps to set RIPS code analysis features as a trigger or hook in any third-party tool.
Typical Use Cases
Trigger Security Scans
With the RIPS CLI tool, you can automatically scan a project for security vulnerabilities. A single command starts a new scan of your application and compares the analysis results to custom defined severity thresholds. For example, the CLI tool can warn you when more than zero critical or high severe vulnerabilities are detected. This enables you to integrate RIPS into basically any system as a security gate that automatically warns you when new security bugs are introduced. In our documentation, we provide examples on how to easily integrate rips-cli into popular CI tools, such as GitLab CI, Drone, or Travis CI.
Search Analysis Results
The CLI tool enables to list all detected security issues and to apply various filters. You can filter the results by issue details to extract the most relevant issues. For example, you can list only critical issues or vulnerabilities that affect a specific file path. You can also review multiple issues at once and efficiently apply review labels to groups of security bugs.
Create Security Reports
RIPS CLI can also be used to export and backup your analysis results. You can export all issue details to PDF, CSV or any other custom format. For example, you can use RIPS CLI to create an execute summary once a week and to send the report to a specific email address. Or you can send out an email alert when specific security issues are detected.
