Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) examines code for security vulnerabilities by continuously analyzing all application interactions initiated by manual tests, automated tests, or a combination of both, all while the application is running. This technology detects vulnerabilities and sends a report in real-time so it does not add extra time to your CI/CD pipeline. The core of an IAST tool is sensor modules and software libraries included in the application code. These sensor modules keep track of application behavior while the interactive tests run.
