Canonical welcomes the .NET development platform, one of Microsoft’s earliest contributions to open source projects, as a native experience on Ubuntu hosts and container images, starting in Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.
Delinea announced the latest release of DevOps Secrets Vault.
Among other new and expanded features, the high-velocity vault for developers and security teams offers enhanced support for Kubernetes, providing more secure credentials management for containerized applications. The release also introduces dynamic secrets for MongoDB, increasing the number of developer-preferred databases supported.
This release of DevOps Secrets Vault expands secure management of secrets for communication between Kubernetes containers. Enhancements to the webhook include dynamically updated secrets and support for custom namespaces. High-speed credentials management is now available for DevOps teams supporting Windows sidecar containers.
DevOps Secrets Vault introduces dynamic secrets for MongoDB, which can create and delete local users just-in-time in the database. With MongoDB now supported, DevOps and DevSecOps teams have more flexibility in securing access to the databases that developers prefer while minimizing standing privileges. MongoDB is one of the top-rated databases in the Stack Overflow 2021 Developer Survey and an attractive target for cyber attacks.
"Developers know security is important, but often don't have enough time to prioritize it. The focus for DevSecOps should be on seamless usability and automation for elastic and dynamic environments," commented Phil Calvin, CPO at Delinea. "By expanding Kubernetes support and adding dynamic secrets for MongoDB, we continue to give DevOps teams the ability to minimize security vulnerabilities related to hard-coded credentials."
The latest release also enhances the graphical user interface with auditing, policy management, and expanded secrets management, providing a more seamless and usable security experience compared to the command-line interface.
