TypeScript 4.3 RC announced

TypeScript 4.3 RC introduces separate write types on properties, the ‘override’ and the ‘–noImplicitOverride’ flags, template string type improvements that can construct new string-like types by concatenating and more. 

The new version also expands which elements in a class can be given ‘#private #names’ to make them truly private at run-time. Methods and accessors can also be given private names.

The full list of features in the new version are available here.

Snyk acquires FossID

Snyk announced its acquisition of FossID, a tool designed to scan code for open-source licenses and vulnerabilities. 

FossID’s capabilities will be integrated into Snyk’s SCA product, Snyk Open Source to extend the developer-first security and license compliance mindset to teams that are leveraging C++ to build their applications. 

FossID’s solution identifies vulnerabilities in all forms of open source by detecting vulnerabilities in unmanaged code. It also contains 2 PBs of machine-harvested source code, AI-powered analysis and developer-friendly compliance capabilities. 

Venafi’s machine identity management solution

Venafi announced its machine identity management solution that leverages Intel Software Guard Extensions, which protects private keys when they are distributed to cloud services or used in runtime, even in untrusted, shared cloud environments.

“Businesses using machine identities with cloud native software and services are especially vulnerable. This pioneering collaboration between Intel and Venafi delivers a brand-new approach to securing the lifecycle of private keys, from issuance to revocation, wherever they are distributed and used,” said Kevin Bocek, the vice president of security strategy and threat intelligence at Venafi.

The new integration that combines the Venafi Trust Protection Platform with Intel Software Guard Extensions is now available from the Venafi Marketplace.
