Synopsys portfolio integrations help developers learn as they code


Synopsys portfolio integrations allow eLearning to recommend specific lessons based on issues identified by Code Sight, Coverity, and Seeker (IAST). The results:

  • Focused lessons. Developers get information on specific security challenges in their code.
  • To-the-point learning options. Short, targeted lessons allow developers to get back to coding quickly.
  • On-demand education. Developers learn about application security when it makes sense for them.

Code Sight integration

After finding a NoSQL query injection defect in a JavaScript file, Code Sight recommended lessons in eLearning courses.

Coverity integration

eLearning training lets you tackle issues head on. When Coverity identifies a defect, eLearning will serve you the relevant CWE course.

Seeker integration

eLearning suggested lessons in OWASP Top 10 and Defensive Programming for Java EE Web Applications for this SQL injection vulnerability.
