The zero trust security model is an approach to network security that enforces strict access controls and authentication at every stage of the software development lifecycle. It treats every user, device, and transaction as a security risk and uses the principle of least privilege to restrict access to sensitive resources and minimize the potential attack surface.

Static application security testing (SAST) involves analyzing source code to identify and address potential security vulnerabilities. Using SAST early in development identifies threats before they can affect a live environment. SAST is particularly important for continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines. These pipelines automate the integration of new code changes into the main codebase and deploy applications to production environments.

CircleCI supports GitLab as a version control system (VCS). In this tutorial you will learn how to set up your first CircleCI CI/CD pipeline for a project hosted on GitLab. As GitLab can be used either as a SaaS tool, as well as self-managed on-premise installation, I will cover the steps to connect it with CircleCI for both.

In our article on managing static credentials, we discussed the necessity of secrets — the passwords, tokens, and API keys that connect digital services together — and the importance of keeping them secure so that your infrastructure and data are kept safe from intrusion and misuse. For organizations delivering software at scale, managing credentials across multiple teams and projects can quickly become tedious and error-prone, creating bottlenecks and unnecessary risk.

Cloud CI/CD is a force multiplier for development teams, especially those working remotely. Automated CI/CD takes load off of developers, allowing them to focus on building better products. Hosted CI/CD adds further benefit to this, ensuring that this newfound capacity isn’t spent managing the testing and deployment infrastructure, and that remote team members have easy access to CI/CD tools.

Our focus on reliability continues. We’re making progress and are learning a lot, but there is certainly more work to be done. How do we know? We’ve been going deep into the data to get a more nuanced understanding of where we can improve. In our last update, we committed to sharing the numbers to show how we think about reliability and what our key results have been.

If you’ve worked in a large, security-minded organization, you know how developers’ need for speed often clashes with the organization’s need for security. Often this conflict erupts into a high-stakes battle between two teams with very different priorities and perspectives. Ok, it may not always be so dramatic, but the challenge of control and empowerment is very real.

As a software engineer, one of your goals is to ensure that your product can be accessed globally by your customers. It’s not enough that an app is bug-free and works flawlessly if it only works on localhost. Docker was introduced to solve the “it works on my machine” problem. For example, the particular version of a programming language a developer is using on Windows or MacOS may not be working on the hosting server.

Kubernetes is a container orchestration system for automating deployment and managing containerized applications. Helm is a Kubernetes package manager that helps you define, install, and upgrade Kubernetes applications. It lets you define reusable templates for Kubernetes components (deployment, service, hpa, service account, etc.) that can be published and shared across applications. In this tutorial, you will learn how to build and install Helm charts for your application to an AWS EKS cluster.
