    Topic: The Hardest Problem in Application Security

    One of the hardest problems that Application Security practitioners need to solve is the problem of visibility. Not only do they need to uncover all of the different projects under development - they also need to worry about what libraries and frameworks those projects are using. Moreover, even after they have discovered all of the projects under development, they need to figure out how to then proceed through identifying all of the vulnerabilities, deduplicating findings across multiple tools, and provide feedback to development teams in a way that is consumable. You can't fix the vulnerabilities you can't see, and in this episode Keith & Paul talk through the process of uncovering the problems you didn't even know you had.
