Monorepos — or the use of a single repository for every part of an application — have been around since before git was invented in 2005. This is in contrast with the more recent approach of having separate repositories for each service and the underlying infrastructure.

Part of the key to Kubernetes security — and the one that is easy to overlook — is the DevOps lifecycle. Kubernetes doesn't exist in a vacuum; in most cases, it leverages infrastructure as code (IaC) and is part of a continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline that DevOps teams use to deliver software. To secure Kubernetes, then, you need to secure the code layer, the entire delivery pipeline that feeds into it, and all the elements at each phase ...

Breaking those silos and fostering collaboration in the name of shared security responsibility is key to success. Here are some considerations to consider to build a DevSecOps culture ...
