DevOps has provided speed and quality benefits with continuous development and deployment methods, but it does not guarantee the security of an entire organization. Hands-On Security in DevOps shows you how to adopt DevOps techniques to continuously improve your organization’s security at every level, rather than just focusing on protecting your infrastructure.
This guide combines DevOps and security to help you to protect cloud services, and teaches you how to use techniques to integrate security directly in your product. You will learn how to implement security at every layer, such as for the web application, cloud infrastructure, communication, and the delivery pipeline layers. With the help of practical examples, you’ll explore the core security aspects, such as blocking attacks, fraud detection, cloud forensics, and incident response. In the concluding chapters, you will cover topics on extending DevOps security, such as risk assessment, threat modeling, and continuous security.
By the end of this book, you will be well-versed in implementing security in all layers of your organization and be confident in monitoring and blocking attacks throughout your cloud services.What you will learnUnderstand DevSecOps culture and organizationLearn security requirements, management, and metricsSecure your architecture design by looking at threat modeling, coding tools and practicesHandle most common security issues and explore black and white-box testing tools and practicesWork with security monitoring toolkits and online fraud detection rulesExplore GDPR and PII handling case studies to understand the DevSecOps lifecycleWho this book is for
Hands-On Security in DevOps is for system administrators, security consultants, and DevOps engineers who want to secure their entire organization. Basic understanding of Cloud computing, automation frameworks, and programming is necessary.
Security automation is the automatic handling of software security assessments tasks. This book helps you to build your security automation framework to scan for vulnerabilities without human intervention.
This book will teach you to adopt security automation techniques to continuously improve your entire software development and security testing. You will learn to use open source tools and techniques to integrate security testing tools directly into your CI/CD framework. With this book, you will see how to implement security inspection at every layer, such as secure code inspection, fuzz testing, Rest API, privacy, infrastructure security, and web UI testing.
With the help of practical examples, this book will teach you to implement the combination of automation and Security in DevOps. You will learn about the integration of security testing results for an overall security status for projects.
By the end of this book, you will be confident implementing automation security in all layers of your software development stages and will be able to build your own in-house security automation platform throughout your mobile and cloud releases.What you will learnAutomate secure code inspection with open source tools and effective secure code scanning suggestionsApply security testing tools and automation frameworks to identify security vulnerabilities in web, mobile and cloud servicesIntegrate security testing tools such as OWASP ZAP, NMAP, SSLyze, SQLMap, and OpenSCAPImplement automation testing techniques with Selenium, JMeter, Robot Framework, Gauntlt, BDD, DDT, and Python unittestExecute security testing of a Rest API Implement web application security with open source tools and script templates for CI/CD integrationIntegrate various types of security testing tool results from a single project into one dashboardWho this book is for
