Worth Reading: Agile Development and Security

Matthias Luft (a good friend of mine, and a guest speaker in the upcoming Building Next-Generation Data Center course) wrote a great post about the (lack of) security in software development.

The parts I like most (and they apply equally well to networking):

  • Become part of the development project;
  • Commit some of your time to the project;
  • Understand what the developers are doing (and why);
  • Evaluate the technology they want to use and tell them what the problems might be (before they throw the results into your lap);
  • Do micro-assessments;
  • Automate ;)

Hint: You’ll be able to meet us both in real life if you register for Troopers 17 and in virtual classroom if you register for the Building Next-Generation Data Center online course.
