Agile continues to be the most adopted software development methodology among organizations worldwide, but it generally hasn't integrated well with traditional security management techniques. And most security professionals aren’t up to speed in their understanding and experience of agile development. To help bridge the divide between these two worlds, this practical guide introduces several security tools and techniques adapted specifically to integrate with agile development. Written by security experts and agile veterans, this book begins by introducing security principles to agile practitioners, and agile principles to security practitioners. The authors also reveal problems they encountered in their own experiences with agile security, and how they worked to solve them. You’ll learn how to: Add security practices to each stage of your existing development lifecycle Integrate security with planning, requirements, design, and at the code level Include security testing as part of your team’s effort to deliver working software in each release Implement regulatory compliance in an agile or DevOps environment Build an effective security program through a culture of empathy, openness, transparency, and collaboration

Continuous delivery adds enormous value to the business and the entire software delivery lifecycle, but adopting this practice means mastering new skills typically outside of a developer’s comfort zone. In this practical book, Daniel Bryant and Abraham Marín-Pérez provide guidance to help experienced Java developers master skills such as architectural design, automated quality assurance, and application packaging and deployment on a variety of platforms. Not only will you learn how to create a comprehensive build pipeline for continually delivering effective software, but you’ll also explore how Java application architecture and deployment platforms have affected the way we rapidly and safely deliver new software to production environments. Get advice for beginning or completing your migration to continuous delivery Design architecture to enable the continuous delivery of Java applications Build application artifacts including fat JARs, virtual machine images, and operating system container (Docker) images Use continuous integration tooling like Jenkins, PMD, and find-sec-bugs to automate code quality checks Create a comprehensive build pipeline and design software to separate the deploy and release processes Explore why functional and system quality attribute testing is vital from development to delivery Learn how to effectively build and test applications locally and observe your system while it runs in production

Integrate Agile ALM and DevOps to Build Better Software and Systems at Lower Cost Agile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) is a comprehensive development lifecycle that embodies essential Agile principles and guides all activities needed to deliver successful software or systems. Agile ALM embodies Agile Configuration Management (CM) and much more. Flexible and robust, it offers “just enough process” to get the job done and leverages DevOps to enhance interactions among all participants. Agile Application Lifecycle Management offers practical advice and strategies for implementing Agile ALM in your complex environment. Leading experts Bob Aiello and Leslie Sachs show how to fully leverage Agile benefits without sacrificing structure, traceability, or repeatability. You’ll find realistic guidance for managing source code, builds, environments, change control, releases, and more. The authors help you support Agile in organizations that maintain traditional practices; conventional ALM systems; or siloed, non-Agile teams. They also show how to scale Agile ALM to large or distributed teams, and to environments from cloud to mainframe. Coverage includes Understanding key concepts underlying modern application and system lifecycles Creating your best processes for developing your most complex software and systems Automating build engineering, continuous integration, and continuous delivery/deployment Enforcing Agile ALM controls without compromising productivity Creating effective IT operations that align with Agile ALM processes Gaining more value from testing and retrospectives Making ALM work in the cloud, and across the enterprise Preparing for the future of Agile ALM Today, you need maximum control, quality, and productivity, and this guide will help you achieve those by using Agile ALM, CM, and DevOps together.

Streamline project workflow with expert agile implementation The Project Management Profession is beginning to go throughrapid and profound transformation due to the widespread adoption ofagile methodologies. Those changes are likely to dramaticallychange the role of project managers in many environments as we haveknown them and raise the bar for the entire project managementprofession; however, we are in the early stages of thattransformation and there is a lot of confusion about the impact ithas on project managers: There are many stereotypes and misconceptions that exist aboutboth Agile and traditional plan-driven project management, Agile and traditional project management principles andpractices are treated as separate and independent domains ofknowledge with little or no integration between the two andsometimes seen as in conflict with each other Agile and "Waterfall" are thought of as two binary,mutually-exclusive choices and companies sometimes try to force-fittheir business and projects to one of those extremes when the rightsolution is to fit the approach to the project It’s no wonder that many Project Managers might beconfused by all of this! This book will help project managersunravel a lot of the confusion that exists; develop a totally newperspective to see Agile and traditional plan-driven projectmanagement principles and practices in a new light as complementaryto each other rather than competitive; and learn to develop anadaptive approach to blend those principles and practices togetherin the right proportions to fit any situation. There are many books on Agile and many books on traditionalproject management but what’s very unique about this book isthat it takes an objective approach to help you understand thestrengths and weaknesses of both of those areas to see how they canwork synergistically to improve project outcomes in anyproject. The book includes discussion topics, real world casestudies, and sample enterprise-level agile frameworks thatfacilitate hands-on learning as well as an in-depth discussion ofthe principles behind both Agile and traditional plan-drivenproject management practices to provide a more thorough level ofunderstanding.

This book sets out to equip agile software development teams and security stakeholders with the tools needed to harden a software product. This is done by fusing the processes of agile software development with the top twenty-five software security bugs widely known to developers and security experts. Building security in and making it an integral part of the software development life cycle is very much a challenge for any software and product development team. This book shows agile teams how the barriers to security can be broken down to build security in to existing or new software products. This book will take agile teams through the process of building security into a software product. Traditional agile team roles are given new, additional security roles and responsibilities; agile will support the flexibility needed for these additional roles. The worksheets and tables provided at the end of this book serve to support scrum masters and product owners as they transition to the new, added responsibility in their organization.
