Episode 64 with Anant Shrivastava

Anant Shrivastava

In this episode of the We Hack Purple podcast host Tanya Janca met with Anant Shrivastava! We talked about securing the entire software supply chain (including your CI/CD and where you get your packages from), and how it is more than just buying a software composition analysis (SCA) tool. He explained the new and very different risks of securing a mobile app versus a regular web app or an API, that’s he’s more of an ops than a dev person, and how the risks are all coming together now that many of us are doing DevOps. He shared his numerous open source projects, such as:

Code vigilant: https://codevigilant.com/,
TamerPlatform : https://tamerplatform.com/ and
HackingArchivesOfIndia https://hackingarchivesofindia.com/.
