The future is passwordless – at least that is what current market developments speak for. Even better digital identities and available biometric technology facilitate secure access to online services without the need for cryptic strings. But there are several pitfalls on the way to a passwordless infrastructure. Guest author Al Lakhani shows what to avoid.
The world of cybersecurity is rapidly becoming an ML arms race, where security pros arm themselves with ML and AI-enhanced defensive tools, while the bad guys use the technology to amplify the threat they pose. See what open source machine learning project is helping hunt security flaws.
After one of the most tumultuous years in recent history, it’s necessary that we take the time to consider what data privacy means in the new context we find ourselves in. With more consumers relying on online services to do everything from their weekly shop to socializing, and more businesses migrating operations into the cloud to support working from home, it’s clear that the integrity of data is more important now than it ever has been.
End-to-end security has to be built in from the start when building, shipping and running containers, so that everyone taking advantage of the technology can benefit. By designing container security to work with developers in their natural workflows, everyone can safely derive value.
Privacy is a human right. With blockchain technology, a true decentralized process governs actions such as uploading or deleting data, preventing the information from being controlled by specific entities and their opaque practices.
Governments around the world are turning to contact tracing apps to combat the spread of Covid-19. However, privacy concerns are well known because they are shared with other types of apps that use a centralized data storage model.
Bolting on security as a phase in the DevOps process, or after, misses out on the bigger picture approach that security can provide across code, clouds and infrastructure. Instead, it is worth spending the time to build security into the development process.
Over the last two decades, the world has seen an increase in more sophisticated and more highly funded threat actors. Whereas lower-level threats attempt to breach security through sheer volume of attacks, these advanced actors are more persistent and methodical.
Security can no longer afford to be at the end of the DevOps process. It needs to be integrated into every step of both development and operations to eliminate vulnerabilities before the application is shipped. In essence, DevOps needs to evolve into DevSecOps.
When there is a security flaw in an Internet of Things system, thousands of devices can be vulnerable. We spoke to Christoph Engelbert who shared tips on how to secure IoT systems both on the hardware and the software side—and why it can be incredibly helpful to ask hacker groups for assistance.
The stakes are higher. Security must be the number one priority. Agile, MicroServices and DevOps are all disciplines that have worked hard to increase the rate at which software can adapt to changing business requirements. How do we bake security into the mix so we don’t end up adding it badly in a rush at the end? The answer is DevSecOps.
DevSecOps isn’t always about success. Senior IT Security Consultant at mgm security partners, Maximiliane Zirm shares the successes, mistakes, and lessons learned in the area of DevSecOps during a large project What’s the verdict: Just how practical is DevSecOps? Find out in this field report from DevOpsCon.
Over the course of its 20-year history, it is clear that Java’s success, and security, has developed due to its continual reinvention, adaptation, and evolution through the works of its community. This article will explore some key innovations and milestones in Java’s history, and explain how they connect with its continued efforts to remain secure through its lifespan.
The Python Software Foundation members have been working on improving the Python Package Index (PyPI). In 2018, they announced that Facebook Research was funding security improvements, so let’s see how far they have come and what future plans they have.
