Overview

Hands-on training to automate security into a fast-paced DevOps environment using various open-source tools and scripts.

Modern enterprises are implementing the technical and cultural changes required to embrace DevOps methodology by introducing practices such Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), Continuous Monitoring (CM) and Infrastructure as Code (IaC). DevSecOps extends DevOps by introducing security in each of these practices giving a certain level of security assurance in the final product. In this training, we will demonstrate using our state-of-the-art DevSecOps Lab as to how to inject security in CI, CD, CM and IaC.

This is a complete hands-on training with attendees requiring only a browser to complete the entire training. Attendees will receive the DevSecOps Lab built using Vagrant and Ansible comprising of various open-source tools and scripts to help the DevOps engineers in automating security within their CI/CD pipeline.

The attendees will receive a DevSecOps-Lab VM (designed by the NotSoSecure team) containing all the code, scripts and tools that are used for building the entire DevSecOps pipeline.
