Detectify Introduces an Open Source Security Tool for Ethical Hackers

Detectify | May 19, 2021

Ugly Duckling, a stand-alone application security tool specially designed for ethical hackers to make it easier for them to share their discoveries, is now available from Detectify, the SaaS security company powered by ethical hackers.

To keep on top of web application security, it's important to find web vulnerabilities as soon as they appear - before attackers exploit them. By offering ethical hackers the tools to build further test modules independently, Ugly Duckling speeds up the integration of vulnerabilities discovered by ethical hackers into automatic security tests on Detectify's platform.

When an ethical hacker discovers a loophole, he or she will create a module as a JSON file and test it in Ugly Duckling to ensure that it works. The JSON file is then implemented on Detectify's platform, allowing thousands of app owners and security teams to access the quality-checked findings. Vulnerability reports submitted to Ugly Duckling can be run live as security checks within 5-10 minutes of submission. It's a win-win situation: security and engineering teams can keep up with the latest exploitable vulnerabilities discovered in the wild, while ethical hackers can get paid more quickly.

To define the vulnerabilities, Ugly Duckling uses a custom JSON-based template format. It detects "stateless" vulnerabilities, i.e., vulnerabilities that can be discovered by analyzing the response to a single HTTP request.

Detectify crowdsources the most latest security research from ethical hackers and distributes it as payload-based tests to security engineers and application owners, allowing them to regularly check their applications for vulnerabilities.

On Github, you can find the Ugly Duckling vulnerability scanning tool, which is open-source and MIT-licensed. The Ugly Duckling web scanner is not limited to ethical hackers in Detectify's Crowdsourced network, but is open for all to use for bug bounty hunting, security research, or penetration testing, in keeping with the company's belief in a collective approach to security.

ISARA, Carillon and Crypto4A Partnership enables a world first Canadian fully integrated Quantum-Safe Now PKI solution

Crypto4A | October 23, 2021

Crypto4A Technologies Inc., ISARA Corp., and Carillon Information Security Inc. today announced their partnership agreement focused on providing organizations with a next generation Quantum Safe NowTM Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) solution. The Quantum-Safe Now™ PKI solution integrates ISARA's Radiate Quantum-safe Toolkit and Catalyst Agile Digital Certificate Methodology, which provide hybrid crypto-agility, with Carillon's world class PKI CertServ ID Management Suite operating on Crypto4A's QxEDGE™ and QxCloud™ Hybrid Security Platform (HSP). By working together, the three Canadian organizations provide a world first quantum safe PKI solution running on purpose-built hybrid crypto-agile hardware. As part of the partnership, the companies intend to develop and market seamless, easy to use quantum-safe PKI cryptographic solutions that ease digital transformations, enable cryptographic agility and simplify cryptographic management. Today's connected economies, identity based digital transformations, DevSecOps teams and cloud-based deployments require new cryptographic capabilities based on quantum-safe software and hardware to provide enterprises with the forward agility, seamless access, security and controls required for cloud, edge, and end user environments. "ISARA's suite of proven crypto-agile capabilities effectively complements the proven capabilities of both Carillon's PKI software and Crypto4A's hardware based crypto-agility resulting in a more robust and easier to use Quantum-Safe Now™ PKI solution. Our approach is to enable customers to discover and manage their cryptographic capabilities in an agile, quantum-safe and trusted way.
