March 29, 2023 | 9AM PST / 12PM EST
When it comes to KAFKA message queues, the best way to protect your applications is to know what vulnerabilities are out there. But how can you find them?
If you're using a message queue in your app, you probably know that it's a critical piece of infrastructure—but what if someone used it to attack your application? That's where Contrast Assess comes in.
Our agent recognizes Kafka MQ messages as entry points and will follow data flow and check for vulnerabilities in the exercised pathways (routes). You can customize trust boundaries in our Contrast UI.
Contrast Assess analyzes all the libraries and dependencies the web app uses and provides accurate results of vulnerabilities within each queue.
