When implemented accurately, DevSecOps significantly increases the productivity of developers and improves the efficiency, quality, and security of the whole software, allowing organizations to release new applications into production quickly. And as enterprises move from on-premises software to the cloud and the implementation of DevOps in their IT operations, the need for better DevSecOps tools and services is on the rise.

Using some of the DevSecOps tools below will help in implementing and automating the required security measures for your IT infrastructure.

DevSecOps Platforms to Watch in 2021

Security in the cloud and cyberspace at large is and should always be one of the main concerns of software companies and every organization that uses technology to provide business solutions.

In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, Cision, a PR software company reported a 400% increase in phishing, DDoS, malware, and other cyber threats compared to the pre-pandemic period.

The compulsory shift…


While OpenShift offers consistent security, default automation, and compatibility with all major cloud platforms, Kubernetes will be your go-to containerization platform if you prefer a more technical and fully controlled interface. It is ideal for developers who want a fast, easy to use, and automated containerization to go for Red Hat’s OpenShift, while developers can adopt Kubernetes if they want a more sophisticated, fully controllable environment. Again, the decision is all yours. We hope you find value in this post to help you make an informed decision on whether to use OpenShift or Kubernetes.

Containerization — the bundling or encapsulation of an application and its required environment to effectively develop, manage and deploy it across various infrastructures — enables organizations and software teams to build more efficient, agile, and scalable applications. Kubernetes and Openshift are the two most commonly used platforms for this purpose.

While Kubernetes and OpenShift appear similar in the context above, there are some notable differences between the two.

As we defined in “Kubernetes vs OpenShift: This is what you need to know”, Kubernetes is an…

Linux Debuts Sigstore to Facilitate Software Supply

The Linux Foundation launched the nonprofit, free-to-use software on the 9th of March, 2021. This is a solid effort to reduce the exposure of the open-source software supply chain to risks.

  1. Sigstore uses 100% open-sourced operation client tooling developed by the Sigstore community.
  2. This cryptographic signing software uses public logging, which reduces the security risks that come with traditional means.
  3. Unlike usual blockchains, Sigstore employs transparency logs, citing their resilience to majority attacks and maturity.

It is worthy to understand that security is not an individual but rather an organizational duty that every member should contribute to. Attackers are adopting more sophisticated techniques in targeting DevOps processes, including Docker Kubernetes, to carry out unwanted crypto mining activities and steal private information. Organizations should improve their security practices by adopting DevSecOps to stay on top of the situation infrastructure in an attack.

This article was originally published on The Chief I/O: Cryptojacking Attacks in Kubernetes: A Serious Threat That Deserves Attention

Security in cyberspace is definitely an important issue, with dedicated specialists being tasked with the protection of users’ data and infrastructure in various organizations.

As cryptocurrencies become an integral and widely used means of transferring value globally, cyberspace’s security threats have incremented with cryptojacking.

Cryptojacking is a form of cyberattack where hackers hijack a target’s computer to stealthily mine cryptocurrency without the user’s awareness.

Because of the greater compute capacities available in the cloud, hackers are now specifically targeting these cryptojacking…

Serverless is one of the significant trends of the moment in software development and deployment. A promising technology, Serverless Computing is developing very quickly in companies. In this concept, the cloud provider is fully responsible for launching and executing the code of your applications. A Serverless platform ensures that the resources necessary for its optimal operation are available.

This article was originally published on The Chief I/O: The Pitfalls of Serverless Computing

Most studies show that Serverless Computing technologies are currently experiencing the most substantial growth in the very varied universe of cloud services. Datadog has published the results of a survey that voluntarily limits its analysis to the Serverless FaaS (Function as a Service) approach and, more particularly, to its use through AWS Lambda.

The first key finding from the study is that half of AWS users have also adopted Amazon Lambda. The research shows that in two years, the concept of Serverless Computing has moved within…


Security in your cloud environment is an important and continuous process to be integrated into DevOps. The books in this list are carefully handpicked and recommended based on their unique specificity to improve your skills in DevSecOps.

This article was originally published on The Chief I/O: 7 Books to Boost your DevSecOps Career

Running an application in the cloud opens it up to various benefits, including speed, cost reduction, and higher efficiency. Together with these benefits, it also comes with a tonne of security threats unique to the cloud.

Traditionally, teams have had a separate security team to understand these threats and harden application systems against them but this isn’t efficient anymore.

As cloud technology evolves with new tech stacks being introduced every other day, there is more need for attention to security than ever.

Google optimizes Kubernetes with an autopilot feature

IT Operations has never looked back since Google introduced Kubernetes becoming the benchmark cloud platform for running microservices infrastructure in the cloud. Though very helpful, Google Kubernetes Engine has proven overwhelming over the years. Emphasis on developing the engine has been an important subject too, yielding the GKE Autopilot, now container orchestration has moved levels up with the hands-off feature.

  1. Google spreads absolute control over not just the control plane, the infrastructure too.
  2. Autopilot introduction brings Simplicity and Reduction in workload operations for developers
  3. Most things manually done in GKE are now carried out automatically e.g infrastructure maintenance
  4. Even though…
