Tenable®, the Exposure Management company, today published a new report outlining the use of generative AI to build new security research tools. The report, titled “How Generative AI is Changing Security Research” highlights four new tools that create efficiencies in processes such as reverse engineering, code debugging, web app security and visibility into cloud-based tools.

The tools demonstrate ongoing experimentation by Tenable Research with generative AI applications like ChatGPT, and have been made available publicly to the security research community through a GitHub repository. One such tool, G-3PO has been explained in detail in a video from Tenable Staff Research Engineer Olivia Fraser.

The report also examines the concept of cognitive bias as a starting point for thinking about how generative AI can and should be approached by the research community.
