Description

Lab Overview

Gauntlt is a security testing framework that uses a command-line interface (CLI) for running security tests, or attacks. Gauntlt provides a report of tests that passed and failed similar to other automated testing frameworks. Gauntlt integrates with many popular security tools and is easily extendable to perform custom security tests. In this Lab, you will learn how to use Gauntlt for security testing and protect application code against attacks with Guantlt by embedding it into an AWS CodePipeline continuous integration pipeline. After completing the Lab you can begin implementing security as code within your own DevOps practices.
