Adopting DevSecOps: Accelerating the delivery of mission capabilities to the warfighter

Jump to section

Open source software is at the core of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) DevSecOps initiative. Red Hat supports the DoD's vision for DevSecOps and is a major contributor to many of the projects mentioned in the DevSecOps Reference Design, including Open Container Initiative, Kubernetes, Istio, Knative, and others. In addition, our services delivery arm is a force multiplier for DevSecOps pathfinders, working directly with Red Hat® product engineering and support organizations to deliver the DoD's DevSecOps vision. 

Our team operates in all DoD classification levels and has built a wealth of knowledge around applying security controls and implementing multilayer security approaches to achieve an authorization to operate (ATO) and continuous ATO. By building software agnostic to the underlying infrastructure that can run on any Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)-Certified Kubernetes implementation, we help pathfinders increase modularity and reduce lock-in.

This webinar will explain the DoD's DevSecOps initiatives and where Red Hat's products and services help accelerate the delivery of warfighter capabilities in this space. Specifically, we’ll discuss how Red Hat: 

  • Shifts left on security by automating our builds, tests, code scanning and patching. 
  • Tracks scientifically proven DevSecOps metrics such as lead time for change, deployment frequency, mean time to recovery (MTTR), and change failure rate. 
  • Advises any pathfinder to get started on adopting the DoD's vision for DevSecOps by using the DoD's centralized artifact repository (DCAR) and the DoD centralized container source code repository (DCCSCR).
