To be agile and deliver on time, developers sometimes shortcut any step that delays the CI/CD build and release. Which is why security practices in DevOps have been weak or nonexistent. Total control over security used to be slow, so developers had to find workarounds. But these shortcuts put your software at risk for compromise.
Key sharing is standard operating procedure. But do you really know who’s using those keys once they’re left in a repository or passed to another dev on your team?
Separation of generation, control and use are crucial components of good DevOps security. Can you remove user access if a key is compromised, or a developer leaves your company?
With so many people signing so many parts of the build, key usage can quickly become impossibly complex. If something goes wrong, can you pinpoint the bad code? Are you able to find out who signed what and when?
When it comes to software security, are you doing everything right except that final, crucial step?
