Security based DevOps Strategy for Secure Software development cylce

Overview

One of the major challenges in the development of applications is to identify and remediate code vulnerabilities before the application goes live. To safeguard applications, our team introduced the DevSecOps strategy in the software development cycle that combines development, operation, and security strategy. OptiSol teamed up with a Canada-based healthcare organization for building an enterprise platform and we have incorporated the DevSecOps process where security plays a part in the production cycle. This automatic process has in turn minimized the risks of data breaches and vulnerabilities through adaption of static and dynamic code analysis .

Business Challenges

null
Code deployment to different environments is done manually
null
During deployments, there are chances of including incorrect API keys or configurations
null
Error prone as deployments are done manually
null
Security verification had to be done manually as a separate process.

Solution Overview

null

Pipeline created using AWS code build

null

Automated the process of building executable/ packages using code build

null

Depending on configuration executable deployed to the right environment

null

API Keys/accounts are configured for different environments to avoid incorrect references.

null

Static and dynamic security assessments are done to avoid any vulnerabilities

null

Code build , static code analysis, dynamic security assessment and functional testing are automated

Business Benefits

null

Productivity improvement as the deployment is fully automated

null

Every commit to the code base undergoes stringent processes defined as pipeline to improve quality

null

Avoidance of incorrect API keys references /configuration going in production.
