Course Description
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 understand of how to apply DevSecOps best practices to reduce software supply chain risks inherent with the use of open source software.

Learning Objectives

On successful completion of this course, learners should have the knowledge and skills to:

  • Expand the development teams use of dependency checking tools, including integration into the build process
  • Ensure application security teams implement security tests to audit select open-source software and components
  • Establish a build process for operations teams migrating server platforms to the containers that ensures installation of the latest open software releases
  • Understand the importance of monitoring repo feeds and CVEs, especially critical libraries such as OpenSSL that could affect many different products
