We should start by defining what a secret is. It’s really any piece of confidential information used to authenticate access to sensitive resources. This includes passwords, API keys, encryption keys, SSH keys, and other digital credentials. Many of the organizations I talk to have an application security program with some OWASP checks in the pipeline, some SAST, but rarely SCA or DAST testing. GitGuardian believes secrets detection and remediation is crucial for maintaining security and preventing unauthorized individuals from accessing sensitive information or disrupting critical systems. I agree and believe the value it can bring to an application security program is significant.
