OWASP Dallas October Meeting
October 10, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Application Security in the DevOps World
In today’s fast paced world, DevOps is picking up speed; however, application security is still the monolithic being from ancient times. Traditionally, Security has always been a part of the testing phase, but this resulted in vulnerabilities being discovered at the end or just not at all. Performing security activities from the beginning of the software development life cycle has been shown to prove profitable in the end. DevOps is fast! DevOps is automation! DevOps is changing mindsets! And as such, traditional application security processes and practices don’t work anymore. Changes in people, process and technology are needed to make software security a success in DevOps.
In this presentation, we will talk about how to integrate security into the DevOps life cycle to ensure the final product is secure. We will explore the different activities that can be carried out and discuss where and when they are integrated into the life cycle. We will also look at a few real life use cases related to those activities.
