Short for development, security, and operations, DevSecOps describes the interplay between these different constituencies to ensure security is built into applications rather than bolted on. From integrating continuous security vulnerability assessment into software development life cycles, to ensuring applications are protected and monitored after deployment, DevSecOps is both a philosophy and and an enabling toolchain.

The Increasing Composition of Open Source in Apps, and One Big Breach, Drive SCA

Software composition analysis (SCA) tools concern themselves with the identification of open source libraries and tools that have been built into or support an application, an identification that helps evaluate unpatched code, licensing issues and potential security vulnerabilities. The continued growth in the percentage of open source in newly created applications, and one big data breach, have led to a significant increase in the in-use percentage of SCA.

Securing Open Source, Part 2: Software Composition Analysis comes into its Own

Software composition analysis is becoming an increasingly visible aspect of due care for security and license risks in open source software. It is also a recognition of the complexity organizations face in getting a handle on these challenges – and an acknowledgement that a need exists for tools and technologies to help.
