CHIPS Articles: NIST to Host DevSecOps and Zero Trust Architecture for Multi-Cloud Environments Event

NIST to Host DevSecOps and Zero Trust Architecture for Multi-Cloud Environments Event
By CHIPS Magazine - December 1, 2020
If your 2021 calendar is filling up fast, you might want to take note of an upcoming virtual one-day conference, to be hosted by the National Institute of Technology and Standards, Jan. 27, 2021. The conference will focus attention on DevSecOps and Zero Trust Architecture as foundational approaches in multi-cloud environments. These two engineering models facilitate rapid secure application development, promote interoperability, and mitigate threats in a perimeter-less environment, NIST said in a release.

Emphasis will be on delivery of DevSecOps and ZTA constructs through use of a “service mesh architecture” – a high-assurance operational infrastructure. These assurances are made available through new tool sets, and open-source software development kits (SDK), a collection of software development tools in one installable package. Using these tools, and through configuration and application programming interface (API) calls, enables features such as mutual transport layer security (TLS), secure service discovery, security monitoring, network resilience and authentication, and access control at the client, service and data level.

The conference program will feature presentations by experts on service mesh architecture and national leaders in DevSecOps and ZTA deployment, and demonstration of proof of concept use cases in multi-cloud environments, NIST said. Presentations will address the following themes:

  • Mitigating insider threat and “man in the middle” attacks;
  • DevSecOps and ZTA tools, analysis of effectiveness, and deployment experience;
  • Elimination of tight coupling between code implementing application logic and application services using service proxies; and
  • Supporting agile Authority to Operate (ATO).

Using the powerful combination of cloud computing, and DevSecOps and ZTA engineering models, is a proven method for organizations to deploy software more rapidly and securely.

Registration fee for this virtual event is $15. The Virtual Event Link will be sent to all registered attendees on January 26, 2021.
