Glue – Application Security Automation

Glue is a framework for running a series of tools. Generally, it is intended as a backbone for automating a security analysis pipeline of tools.

Recommended Usage
For those wishing to run Glue, we recommend using the docker image because it should have the other tools it uses available already and configured. See the documentation for more info. Glue Docker Documentation
For those interested in how to use Glue in a DevOps context, see Glue DevOps Integration Options

Installation
gem install owasp-glue
or
docker run owasp/glue

Installation for Development

git clone https://github.com/owasp/glue
cd glue -- RVM will set to 2.3.1 with Gemset Glue
gem install bundler
bundle install

Running in Development

cd lib
../bin/glue -h

Extending Glue
Glue is intended to be extended through added “tasks”. To add a new tool, copy an existing task and tweak to make it work for the tool in question.

Usage
Glue <options> <target>

Options
Common options include:

-d for debug
-f for format (takes "json", "csv", "jira")

For a full list of options, use Glue --help or see the OPTIONS.md file.

Target
The target can be:

  • Filesystem (which is analyzed in place)
  • Git repo (which is cloned for analysis)
  • Other types of images (.iso, docker, etc. are experimental)

Dependencies

  • clamav
  • hashdeep
  • rm (*nix)
  • git
  • mount (*nix)
  • docker

Development
To run the code, run the following from the root directory:
>ruby bin/Glue <options> target
To build a gem, just run:
gem build Glue.gemspec

Integration

Git Hooks
First, grab the hook from the code.

meditation:hooks mk$ cp /area53/owasp/Glue/hooks/pre-commit .

Then make it executable.

meditation:hooks mk$ chmod +x pre-commit

Make sure the shell you are committing in can see docker.

meditation:hooks mk$ eval "$(docker-machine env default)"

Now go test and make a change and commit a file. The result should be that Glue runs against your code and will not allow commits unless the results are clean. (Which is not necessarily a reasonable expectation)

Configuration files
For advanced usage scenarios, you can save your configuration and use it at runtime.
