Building DevOps and DevSecOps in the cloud

As you have learned in previous sections, building a CI/CD pipeline requires multiple tools, and adding security automation on top of that increases the complexity. Integrating various tools and aggregating the vulnerability findings can be a challenge to do from scratch. A public cloud provider such as AWS provides the flexibility to build DevSecOps pipelines with easy integrations of cloud-native and third-party tools and aggregate security findings.

The following DevSecOps pipeline architecture covers CI/CD practices, including SCA, SAST, and DAST tools to visualize the concepts of security automation in the pipeline:

Figure 12.15: DevSecOps CI/CD pipeline architecture in the AWS cloud

As shown in the preceding diagram, the CI/CD pipeline gets triggered when a developer commits the code in GitHub. An event gets generated to start the AWS CodePipeline using AWS CloudWatch. AWS CodePipeline orchestrates the CI/CD pipeline...
