CI/CD with SAST and DAST for Embedded Devices

November 19th @ 16:00 - 18:00 (GMT +4) // HITB CommSec Track


Skill Level








Learn about approaches to general quality assurance and security testing on real hardware in an automated way. We share our story about going from zero to full automation for multiple device families on a scale using FOSS and commercial tools blended with homebrew solutions and a pinch of creative thinking.

who should attend?

SWEs, SDETs, AppSec engineers who want to build or improve their CI/CD pipeline for embedded devices, and embedded pentesters who want to automate some aspects of their work.


Automating firmware (security) testing on real hardware and scaling it to hundreds of devices.


An in-depth review of hardware harness one might need to integrate a real device into a CI/CD pipeline using Raspberry Pi as a platform for UART, JTAG and different wireless communication protocols

An in-depth review of software for CI/CD: leveraging Python and available libraries together with CI/CD, SAST and homebrewed software

How to scale testing to hundreds of devices

  • Integrating security steps into different parts of embedded CI/CD pipeline
  • Reusing approaches from embedded pipelines to test companion APIs and services
