CI/CD Security & Why Does It Matter?
CI/CD is a modern software practice with roots in the Agile methodology and is foundational to DevOps practices that blur the lines between IT operations and software development. CI/CD stands for Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD). It aims to fortify software development and delivery pipelines by establishing security best practices early and continuously in the process.
What is CI/CD Security?
CI/CD security is a continuous process that seeks to identify and mitigate security weaknesses and vulnerabilities at every stage of the CI/CD pipeline using such techniques as:
- Source composition analysis
- Static application security testing
- CI/CD access controls
- Runtime security
The importance of CI/CD pipelines has grown, especially as a vital part of developing and deploying cloud-native applications. This increased profile heightens the need to protect them with security best practices while keeping their security goals top of mind. To read the full article, click here.
Top Picks for you this week
The release of Kubernetes v1.25 marks a major milestone for out-of-the-box pod security controls. Pod Security Admission (PSA) has graduated to stable, and Pod Security Policy (PSP) has been removed. Kubernetes PSP was deprecated in Kubernetes v1.21 and no longer functions in Kubernetes v1.25 and later.
According to Verizon, misuse of credentials is to blame for 50% of security breaches. With the use of multifactor authentication and least-privilege principles, it is possible to prevent the epidemic of credential compromise that plagues cybersecurity.
Building an effective CI/CD pipeline is as much about the team and organizational culture as it is about the processes and tools that you use. Continuous integration, delivery, and deployment are DevOps practices. They rely on breaking down the traditional silos between developers, testers, and operations.
