Pipeline Logo


Pipeline is a framework for running a series of tools. Generally, it is intended as a backbone for automating a security analysis pipeline of tools.

Recommended Usage

For those wishing to run pipeline, we recommend using the docker image. See the documentation for more info. Pipeline Docker Documentation

For those interested in how to use Pipeline in a DevOps context, see Pipeline DevOps Integration Options


gem install pipeline

Extending Pipeline

Pipeline is intended to be extended through added "tasks". To add a new tool, copy an existing task and tweak to make it work for the tool in question.




Common options include: -d for debug -f for format (takes "json", "csv", "jira")

For a full list of options, use pipeline --help or see the OPTIONS.md file.


The target can be:

  • Filesystem (which is analyzed in place)
  • Git repo (which is cloned for analysis)
  • Other types of images (.iso, docker, etc. are experimental)


  • clamav
  • hashdeep
  • rm (*nix)
  • git
  • mount (*nix)
  • docker


To run the code, run the following from the root directory:

ruby bin/pipeline target

To build a gem, just run: gem build pipeline.gemspec


Git Hooks

First, grab the hook from the code.

meditation:hooks mk$ cp /area53/owasp/pipeline/hooks/pre-commit .

Then make it executable.

meditation:hooks mk$ chmod +x pre-commit

Make sure the shell you are committing in can see docker.

meditation:hooks mk$ eval "$(docker-machine env default)"

Now go test and make a change and commit a file. The result should be that pipeline runs against your code and will not allow commits unless the results are clean. (Which is not necessarily a reasonable expectation)

Configuration files

For advanced usage scenarios, you can save your configuration and use it at runtime.
