DevOps testing is an approach within DevOps ecosystems to integrate security programs and perspectives throughout the SDLC. At the earliest stages, security perspectives can evaluate defined users, software designs, and goals to contribute secure approaches. By integrating security frameworks and experts throughout the SDLC stages, security tests can be run and installed at each technology layer, between applications, and across teams.
For example, tests can target specific stages of a program’s lifespan, and testing can occur pre-execution, running static application security testing (SAST). DevOps testing can happen once execution has taken place, through dynamic application security testing (DAST). And tests can be applied within the applications to run independently in runtime application self protection (RASP).
