As with the evolution to DevOps, DevSecOps requires a shift in mindset towards further integration of development and operations. Indeed, DevSecOps goes a step further by proposing to integrate security perspectives across the process. The schematics below depict how the DevOps process is modified by DevSecOps.
This integrated security approach adds robustness to the existing agility of the DevOps development life cycle while ensuring the security perspective does not inflate the cycle times. With security taking center stage in IT systems, the DevSecOps practice is gaining prominence as the de facto practice in the software development world.
Building a secure SDLC involves securing each step in the SDLC to incorporate security considerations.
