So Happy Together – Making Life Better with a Real DevSecOps Culture

It may be hard for some to believe, but it’s been over a decade since DevOps was first introduced. It wasn’t very long after its introduction that the concept of DevSecOps began to emerge as security practitioners attempted to keep application security practices engaged in software delivery. However, recent surveys show that even in organizations that have adopted a DevSecOps model, security is still often viewed as a bottleneck. This idea of security as an inhibitor can undermine the promise of DevSecOps to deliver a culture of shared responsibility for security. Hacker, former developer, and application security advocate Alyssa Miller dives into the key issues that keep security on the outside looking in when it comes to DevOps culture. She’ll provide insights from recent studies that have looked at the state of DevSecOps and share the key issues that our security teams often fail to overcome when trying to leverage security practices Through her analysis, Alyssa identifies tangible, practical actions that organizations can take immediately to begin improving collaboration and enablement within pipeline. Alyssa will demonstrate how adding the Sec to DevOps can actually make Developers and Operations happier, more efficient, and more effective. Finally, Alyssa delivers a forward-looking viewpoint for what lies beyond DevSecOps, and how this culture can be cultivated and extended into the broader business.

Cristina Bowerman
Chef at the Michelin Star Glass Hostaria Restaurant in Rome.

Chef Cristina Bowerman, the only female chef with 1 Michelin star in Rome, was born in Cerignola, a small town in Puglia, Italy. After starting her career in Law, she decided to move to San Francisco to continue his law studies. While there, to learn “American like an American,” she worked in several different positions. Her first contact with the kitchen happened at a place called started Higher Grounds, a renowned coffee house in SF. Then she started to work for Spectrum Foods, which owned 16 high-end restaurants, almost all Italian. After that, she moved to Southern California, where she lived for a while, and then to the city she loves, Austin, TX. In Austin, she finally discovered her love for cooking and decided to become a professional. She did, in fact, enrolled and graduated with the maximum score at TXCA, obtaining a liberal art degree. Her first experience with high-end cuisine is under Chef David Bull, James Beard award, and well-renown chef. Then she decided she needed to create her own style and make it as personal as possible. That is why she moved to Rome. But, first, she wanted to know more about her roots. Still, her idea was to go back after experiencing the Convivio Troiani, a Michelin star restaurant in Rome, and open her own restaurant in Austin. In the short period of time she was in Rome, she got offered many opportunities, and Glass Hostaria in Trastevere was the one she fell in love with. Glass had opened just a little less than a year before. Glass is a contemporary and innovative space both in philosophy and in the gastronomic proposal. The restaurant is counter-current with the Trastevere scene, exactly like Cristina’s cuisine. Her kitchen style results from experiences, travels, meetings, culinary training, and studies, always been the primary source of inspiration. Cristina's cuisine is a cultural crossing that tells about taste through the constant dialogue between traditions, cultures, memory, and places. Michelin star since 2010, and “Tre forchette - Gambero Rosso” since 2020, she is a case study of Bocconi Universit. She wrote her first book in 2014, “Da Cerignola a San Francisco e ritorno la mia vita di chef contro corrente” Mondadori and her second one in 2019 “the Chef meets the Artist” published by Maretti Editore. Both books underline the strong her strong personality.

[Tutorial] Cloud-Native Architecture

It seems like a new cloud-native technology or project is launched every week, and though there are technical changes required for building and operating cloud-native applications, technology alone isn’t a silver bullet. It turns out that how you build your applications is critical to enable seamless scaling and resiliency to failures. What do you have to do to ensure your applications can fully leverage the power and flexibility the cloud offers? The 12-Factor principles have been around for a decade and have proven themselves as core, foundational principles for cloud-native applications. But they require changes to how you design your applications, the way teams collaborate on code, and more. Understanding the 12-Factor principles is a strong foundation for adopting cloud-native patterns and practices. Starting with an architectural kata, Nate and Jakub will event storm a possible solution stopping along the way to identify key quality attributes, fitness functions and architectural patterns required to deliver a solution. Distributed architectures have similar problems and rather than “roll our own solutions” we will leverage Spring Cloud to solve common challenges while lessening technical complexity.

So You Think You Know the Behavior of Your Containers? Would You Stake Your Job on it?

You’ve developed a fabulous application in a container/Kubernetes Continuous Integration (CI) pipeline. The application works as it should, and the static scans look secure, but, is it actually operating securely? Are any 3rd party components you’ve integrated doing something they shouldn’t be doing? How do you know? To be confident about the behavior of your app, you need to identify risks in your code, risks in your build artifacts (executables & container images), and risks in your running applications. SAST tools identify risks in your code. And tools like JFrog Xray are great for identifying risks in your container images. When it comes to observing running applications for risks, active inspection of running binaries within a container and utilizing live telemetry is key. Continuous observability enables this by filling the gaps that static code (SAST) and dynamic external inspections (DAST) don’t cover. During this technical session, you’ll see continuous observability in action and the benefits the solution delivers to developers and their teams. Mike Larkin, CTO at DeepFactor, and John Day, Customer Success Engineer at DeepFactor, will discuss a straightforward method to obtain millions of live telemetry events across various layers of application behavior—including system calls, library calls, and network, web, and API layers—in every thread of every process of your container, extracting metric data with minimal overhead. This information can then be processed to detect anomalies and indicate issues that may affect the unknowing behavior of your container be it security, compliance, or operational intention. You’ll leave this session armed with the knowledge to immediately leverage continuous observability to consistently deploy apps with confidence.

DevSecOps - The Broken or Blurred Lines of Defense

A classic model for risk management and control is something called “The Three Lines of Defense (3ODL).” The three lines are as follows: Line 1: Risk Owners - Front-line staff and operational management Line 2: Risk Oversight - Risk management and compliance functions Line 3: Risk Assurance - Internal audit However, with the advent of modern sociotechnical systems like Agile, Cloud Native, and Event-Driven architectures these legacy lines (3ODL) are at best blurred and at worst completely broken. With the modern patterns and practices of DevOps and DevSecOps it’s not clear who the front-line owners are anymore. Risk management and organizational compliance teams struggle to adapt to new cloud-native models such as ephemeral containers, microservices, and event-driven architecture like serverless. Most organizations' internal audit processes today are highly toil-based and have low efficacy. This is something I have called in previous presentations “Security and Compliance Theater.” In this presentation, we are going to look at a couple of case studies that include the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to 3ODL. Primary topics covered are organizational design, DevSecOps, and Automated Governance.

The Art of Being Resilient. How to Handle Failures Gracefully.

You invest your time and effort breaking up that monolithic Frankenstein into a suite of elegant composable micro-services, containerize them and deploy them somewhere in the cloud in the form of distributed resources. Then you proudly watch it all come together reaping the benefits of the most scalable architectures. It is all fine and dandy from this point on. Too good to be true? Of course! This session is about what to do when you wake up to find yourself in the middle diagnosing that first bug or application failure through the convoluted web of distributed systems of your own doing. Through a series of code snippets, we will introduce the most important open-source projects tools to strike the right balance of tooling and best practices to handle failures gracefully and detect them quickly in the world of distributed systems.

[Tutorial] Cloud-Native Architecture

It seems like a new cloud-native technology or project is launched every week, and though there are technical changes required for building and operating cloud-native applications, technology alone isn’t a silver bullet. It turns out that how you build your applications is critical to enable seamless scaling and resiliency to failures. What do you have to do to ensure your applications can fully leverage the power and flexibility the cloud offers? The 12-Factor principles have been around for a decade and have proven themselves as core, foundational principles for cloud-native applications. But they require changes to how you design your applications, the way teams collaborate on code, and more. Understanding the 12-Factor principles is a strong foundation for adopting cloud-native patterns and practices. Starting with an architectural kata, Nate and Jakub will event storm a possible solution stopping along the way to identify key quality attributes, fitness functions and architectural patterns required to deliver a solution. Distributed architectures have similar problems and rather than “roll our own solutions” we will leverage Spring Cloud to solve common challenges while lessening technical complexity.

4 Maps of DevOps

Although DevOps practices deliver incredible benefits to organizations looking to improve their software delivery practices, the larger positive impact of DevOps to delivering value is often harder to realize. A set of practices we’ve found to help organizations is something we call the 4 Maps of DevOps. Fitting nicely in between the 3 ways and 5 ideals, the 4 maps consist of Outcome Mapping, Value Stream Mapping, Dependency Mapping and Capability Mapping. They help you create a powerful roadmap that is outcomes-focused and targeted at the most important problems. Through this talk, I’ll walk through the benefits these maps produce, how they relate to one another and the problems you can target with them. I’ll go through some real-life examples of using these maps to help organizations. This talk is for anybody who is struggling to work out where to start or where to go next with their adoption of DevOps.

Spearited Guidance: Learning About DevSecOps

Let’s talk about security in an organization. Most commonly, security sits at or after the last phase of the software development life cycle (SDLC) and can make or break the decision to release into production. Unfortunately, waiting on such decisive feedback until after something has been built frequently results in needing to make changes after it’s been marked as ‘complete’, which is costly and inefficient. Instead, let’s learn from how we created shorter development cycles - instead of making Big Decisions at the very end, make smaller, iterative decisions throughout the entire journey that are easier to implement or reverse. One way to do that is by implementing DevSecOps, which adjusts the workflows of development, operations, and security so that security decisions are made on smaller scales at every phase of the SDLC. As with development and operations, even with preparation there can still be incidents - in this case, security incidents - so I’ll also be reviewing our 14 Step Secure Incident Response process, including the what and why of each step.

[Tutorial] The Future of Policy Enforcement: Decoupled and Distributed

How do you control authorization (who/what can do what) across your cloud-native application stack? Does your company rely on tribal knowledge, spreadsheets, and wikis to enforce important policies at the host, platform, service, and app entitlements level, or are you hard-coding rules into each segment of your stack? The Open Policy Agent (OPA) project can simplify and accelerate application development by decoupling policy decisions from enforcement. Get more control and visibility over who can do what and eliminate the need for multiple rulesets and bespoke policy implementations. Organizations like Netflix, Goldman Sachs, Pinterest, and Atlassian are deploying OPA to enable distributed policy enforcement across a range of languages, execution environments, and protocols. This talk will highlight proven use cases for OPA authorization and show live-coded examples that leverage extensibility and decoupling so you can enforce policies that: * Restrict API access during blackout periods * Grant SSH and sudo access to on-call engineers * Require test certification for workloads deployed to production environments This talk is aimed at engineers building (or with an interest in building) platforms in their organizations. Attendees can expect to walk away with fresh ideas about how to enforce complex OPA policies at scale without introducing significant latency or impacting availability.

The Shipa application management framework for Kubernetes enables simple application deployment and management, directly from JFrog Artifactory and Pipelines. DevOps practitioners attending this session will learn: How to leverage the end-to-end automation and management that JFrog offers in combination with Shipa’s capabilities for deploying applications to Kubernetes clusters. Through a step-by-step demonstration, attendees will become familiar with using the Shipa Dashboard and CLI to introduce a new application. Attendees will learn how to apply a Docker container application image - hosted in the JFrog Docker Registry or JFrog Artifactory -- and complete the application’s deployment directly from JFrog Pipeline to Shipa. Finally, attendees will learn the benefits of scanning application images with JFrog Xray and deploying them safely to a chosen Kubernetes cluster using Shipa. Speakers: Bruno Andrade - CEO and Founder of Shipa Melissa McKay, Developer Advocate, JFrog

[Tutorial] Cloud-Native Data Pipelines with Kafka Connect on Kubernetes

Getting data between systems, particularly at scale, is a common challenge faced by data engineers. Pipelines need to be reliable, flexible, and scalable, and without requiring us to write the same boilerplate code each time. Kafka Connect is a framework that provides scalable & fault-tolerant integration between Apache Kafka and other systems. It can be deployed on containers making it easy to scale for increased capacity, throughput, and resilience. We will give a short intro to Kafka Connect and container technologies before proceeding to a deep dive into practical applications. Attendees will learn about: • Real-world Kafka Connect pipelines. • How to build custom connector container images using JFrog Pipelines and JFrog Artifactory. • Configuration, and orchestration of Kafka Connect pipelines with Kubernetes using GitOps.
