Evolving from DevOps to DevSecOps with the JFrog Platform

Narasimha Pai| Senior Solution Engineer, JFrog
Rakesh Krishna | Senior Solution Engineer, JFrog
End-to-end supply chain security requires vigilance. This starts before the developer calls an external package, through proprietary code development, code compiling, interim builds, and the pipeline to release and distribution, all the way to production and after deployment. This is a unique full-day course, featured only at Training Day for the first time In this training, we’ll identify a typical Enterprise Software Supply chain and its risk for attack. We’ll also discuss ways to enable end-to-end vigilance for software supply chain risk management.

By the end of this training, you should be able to:

  • Understand what software supply chain is, what it is made of and how to secure it end to end. This includes securing Open Source components, Configurations and IaC.
  • How to gain visibility into the dependencies being used, packages being developed and gate keeping them based on vulnerabilities , license compliance and operational risk to ensure safety.
  • Learn various tools that the JFrog Software Supply Chain security platform offers and how to onboard them.

Who should attend?

  • Developers looking to implement shift-left best practices
  • Application Security Engineers looking to save time while reviewing security violations in the software supply chain
  • Build and Release Engineers exploring SBOM generation and export capabilities
  • DevOps Engineers onboarding application security best practices

JFrog Platform Essentials

Richard Clark | Solutions Engineering Manager, JFrog
Selva Sabapathy | Senior Solution Engineer, JFrog
In this hands-on session, you’ll learn the basics of JFrog Artifactory, JFrog Xray, and JFrog Pipelines to accelerate your organization’s DevSecOps journey. You’ll be exposed to configure repositories, store OSS and custom artifacts using popular CI servers, scan stored artifacts, and automate CD pipelines using REST API, JFrog CLI and JFrog AQL. Included are strategies to secure artifacts in various phases of SDLC, and advance your DevSecOps journey with JFrog Xray and JFrog Advanced Security (JAS), and integrate with JFrog Ecosystem tools to “Shift Left”.

By the end of this training, you should be able to:

  • Acquire fundamental knowledge of JFrog’s key tools such as Artifactory, Xray, Distribution, Pipelines, and Connect, which can help expedite their organization’s DevSecOps progress.
  • Gain hands-on experience in configuring repositories, storing both open-source software (OSS) and customized artifacts with widely-used CI servers, scanning stored artifacts, distributing authorized artifacts, and automating continuous delivery (CD) pipelines with REST API, JFrog CLI, and JFrog AQL.

Who should attend?

  • Engineers in SDLC Phases: Development, Automation, DevOps, and SRE
  • Security Engineers who want to secure their software supply chain with the JFrog Platform

JFrog Platform Automation

Maharshi Patel | Senior Solution Engineer, JFrog
Erik Adelson | Solution Engineer, JFrog
In this hands-on training, you’ll learn how to automate processes in JFrog Platform (Artifactory, Xray, Distribution) using REST API, JFrog CLI (a swiss army knife that simplifies many of the day-to-day DevOps operations) or Terraform provider. Artifactory processes such as configure repositories, role based mechanism, create JFrog Project, integrate Artifactory with build server and push/promote artifacts to higher environments, etc. JFrog Xray processes like create policy (Security, license, operational, etc) and watch, scan artifacts/builds, generate reports on vulnerabilities/compliance/operation risk, etc. In JFrog Distribution, create release bundle and distribute to edge as immutable object.During the session, we will also go over the best practices that enterprise organizations are following to secure their supply chain using automation.

By the end of this training, you should be able to:

  • JFrog platform administrators will be able to use these automation processes to manage their platform configuration
  • Developers will know how to pull OSS artifacts from the JFrog platform and remediate vulnerabilities or compliance risk during their development phase.
  • Security teams will be able to create processes to take automatic actions based on the criteria as well as generate reports (Vuln, compliance, SBOM)

Who should attend?

  • Developers
  • Release Engineers
  • Artifactory Administrators who have some experience using the JFrog Platform and are familiar with basic JFrog Platform concepts and usage
  • This training requires prior scripting, REST API, and curl knowledge

Multisite Use Cases With the JFrog Platform

Shubha Gururaja Rao | Director of Solution Engineering, JFrog

Introduction to DevSecOps With JFrog Xray

Asim Parekh | Solution Architect, JFrog
Kushal Madireddy | Senior Solutions Engineer, JFrog
Securing your software supply chain is an increasingly complex problem with evolving attack methods and a mix of security point solutions, which can leave you with security blind spots and gaps across your supply chain. This training will discuss how JFrog Xray can help with DevSecOps, how it integrates with the JFrog Platform to secure builds and artifacts, and how to create different policies for different stages of the CI/CD process. We’ll show how to use Xray’s integration with IDEs and CI Servers to reduce risk, speed up development, and ensure reliability in production.

By the end of this training, you should be able to:

  • Understand the impact of these components on production system quality, performance, and architectural changes
  • How to use Xray’s integration with IDEs and CI Servers to reduce risk, speed up development, and ensure reliability in production
  • Identify container security, why it’s different, and how to streamline security and governance for cloud-native apps
