OWASP Top 10 CI CD Security Risks

What is OWASP Top 10 CI CD

OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) Top 10 list focuses primarily on web application security risks rather than CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment) security risks.

Example of OWASP CI CD policies in SSD

  • Prohibited use of unspecified package versions - Unspecified Package versions can results in fetching uncertified latest package versions. It should be mandatory to pull only specific version except for latest as artifacts and dependencies.

  • Refrain from running pipelines originating from forked repos - Repositories should be protected based on 2FA authentication

  • Untrusted Deployment via Configuration Drift - Pipeline configuration should be fetched only from trusted sources.

  • Open to merge public repositories for code utilities - Dependency packages in code should not be open to merge publically.
