Saw it floating in the macadmins slack. Without looking too closely other than the webpage..10000ft. view of any security risks an Okta admin would be concerned with

I use it pretty regularly, itโ€™s great. The ability to quickly export data with it has been hugely useful.

Yeah, it's a pretty great tool for taking okta admin to the next level. And if you have any issues, just scream at @gabriel.sroka

I think Bert asks a valid question. How can you trust me/my code/the Chrome webstore/Chrome itself, etc?

i don't know the answer. Perhaps you all do...

I think alot of it just comes through interacting with you within the community and you being so responsive to concerns/issues related to the application. I do believe that Rockstar is a power user tool and the reason that its praised both here and Macadmins is because folks in both slack communities have used it and seen its value. So outside of just personal trust, the only way I think you can "trust" it would be if Okta integrated into their own okta extension somehow.

Fair enough, but I wonder this when I download/use open source software, too. How do I know I can trust it? It's an interesting question and something that's difficult to answer.

Maybe I should hire someone to pen test it. Would that help?

Might be a good general discussion for #security. I would say the two main options would be evaluating the open source code, and the reputation of the developer, which in this case I think is confirmed.

Not being a developer myself I would probably rely on yet again- reputable third party tools to evaluate third party tools ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thanks also for your insight @marquesstewart

I agree @bert.smith with possibly sticking with a reputable third party. But in this particular case, since you can literally reach out to the person who developed the code and that person is an active member of the community - it helps get you over the hump of trust.

Yes Marques, thats what I was getting at in "this case is confirmed". Sorry if I wasn't clear.
