One question


Q: Does DevOps need a distinct security “flavor”?


A: I've seen “SecDevOps” discussed, “Rugged DevOps” and on and on ... The only reason to explicitly call out whether we're adding security function into a movement like DevOps is if there are use-cases where security is absent. I can't think of one such case, so why would we want to have a “SecDevOps” vs. “DevOps,” where one implies the absence of security principles? … It perpetuates the notion that security principles are something that is apart from the development and deployment cycles—that security is an add-on.
