DSO 206 - Securing the Open Source Supply Chain
As modern software development evolves, organizations are finding themselves leveraging Open Source Software to reduce costs, simplify operations, accelerate innovation, and improve interoperability. Adoption is expected to continue, but distribution and licenses allow anyone to use, view, modify, and share source code, which introduces new security vulnerability risks into the supply chain. This course provides learners with an understanding of how to apply DevSecOps best practices to reduce software supply chain risks inherent with the use of open-source software.
After completing this course you will be to meet compliance requirements while developing a DevSecOps mindset, including:
- Expanding the development teams use of dependency checking tools, including integration into the build process
- Ensuring application security teams implement security tests to audit select open-source software and components
- Establishing a build process that ensures the installation of the lastest open software releases for operations teams migrating server platforms to containers
- Understanding the importance of monitoring repo feeds and CVEs, especially critical libraries such as OpenSSL that could affect many different products
