Brakeman - Rails Security Scanner

Static analysis security scanner for Ruby on Rails

Brakeman 2.4.3 Released

A new gem version has been released because the 2.4.2 gem was not signed. No other changes were introduced.

Signed Gems

As a reminder, the Brakeman gems are (supposed to be) signed and can be verified with this certificate.

To verify on installation:

gem cert --add <(curl -Ls https://raw.github.com/presidentbeef/brakeman/master/brakeman-public_cert.pem)
gem install brakeman -P MediumSecurity

“HighSecurity” requires all dependencies to be signed as well, which is unlikely.

There is some weirdness around -P MediumSecurity currently. The simplest solution seems to be:

gem install brakeman   # Install Brakeman and all dependencies
gem uninstall brakeman # Remove the Brakeman gem
gem install brakeman -P MediumSecurity  # Install Brakeman gem and check signature
