The OWASP AppSec Pipeline Project
The OWASP AppSec Pipeline Project is the place to find the information you need to increase the speed and automation of your AppSec program. Using the documentation and references of this project will allow you to setup your own AppSec Pipeline.
The AppSec pipeline project is a place to gather together information, techniques and tools to create your own AppSec Pipeline. AppSec Pipelines take the principals of DevOps and Lean and apply that to an application security program. The project will gather references, cheat sheets, and specific guidance for tools/software which would compose an AppSec Pipeline.
The initial launch of this project include an a web-based Application inventory and engagement management tool called Bag of Holding. See the "Pipeline Tools" Tab for more infomration

What are DevOp Security Pipeline Tools?
DevOp security pipeline tools are written with the mindset of API first. The goal is that a security tool will expose all the core functionality of the product as an API. Tools need to have an API so that the 'All the things' can be automated. Each tool will be evaluated with the criteria outlined below including example pipeline use cases.
Application Description: Overview of the security tool, description and product web page.
API: The type of API (REST, SOAP), API coverage (% of total features available via the API) and API Docs.
Pipeline Position: Where in the AppSec pipeline the tool would be best suited to reside
Cloud Scalable: Is the tool cloud aware and can the tool scale based on demand?
Runs as a Service: Can the tool run as a service or in headless mode?
Pipeline Example: Link to an example use case of the tool in the pipeline
Client Libraries: What client libraries are written to assist in integration. For example a python or Go library.
CI/CD Plugins: Does the tool have CI/CD plugins for integration into a DevOps pipeline. For example a Jenkins plugin.
Data Sent to the Cloud: What kind of data, if any, is sent off premise to the cloud? Is there an option to keep all data in-house?
We are currently working on gathering a list of the current tools and evaluating each tool based on the criteria listed. The goal is to create a one page wiki document of the application.
