Legit Security Adds Sensors to Detect Usage of Gen AI Tools to Write Code

In General

Legit Security today announced it has added the ability to detect when developers use generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools to write code to its application security posture management (ASPM) platform.

The ASPM platform developed by Legit Security already has discovery capabilities for application secrets, for example, enabled by sensors that are now being extended to include generative AI tools.

Legit Security CTO Liav Caspi said the overall goal is to allow DevSecOps teams to identify who uses these tools to write which types of code. Each DevSecOps team can then decide how stringently to enforce policies to either ban or limit usage of those tools, he added.

There is no doubt that generative AI tools are increasing developer productivity, but the large language models (LLMs) that provide the ability to generate code were trained using examples of code of varying quality collected from across the web. Much of that code either contains known vulnerabilities or is simply…
