Publisher No Starch Press touts Justin Seitz's new book Gray Hat Python as “the first Python book written for security analysts”. Subtitled “Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse Engineers”, the book explains the intricacies of using Python to assist in security analysis tasks, teaching readers how to design debuggers, create powerful fuzzers, utilize open-source libraries to automate tedious tasks, interface with security tools and more. Gray Hat Python, says No Starch, covers everything from the nuts and bolts of how to use the language for basic code and DLL injection to using Python to analyze binaries and disassemble software. More than anything, however, the book reveals how superior the Python language is when it comes to hacking, reverse engineering, malware analysis and software testing.
The gist behind Black Duck Software's new Black Duck Suite is to give development organizations a comprehensive management platform for taking advantage of open-source components while addressing the associated management, compliance and security challenges. Black Duck says that its new product brings “new levels of automation and efficiency” to these tasks and “enables developers to focus on creating innovative business value instead of 're-inventing the wheel'”. Black Duck Suite is a unified framework of the company's Code Center, Export and Protex enterprise products, plus SDK with Web services API that integrates with other tools and environments. Key product features include a searchable internal catalog, a customizable approval work flow and a comprehensive KnowledgeBase of open-source information.
