How secure is your CICD pipeline?
Looking at a CICD pipeline with security in mind, reveals some interesting concerns. Consider the credentials and access typically assigned to each step, and what’s actually required for each step - Read Write access, and Read Only access. The CI system can be a target, because it’s got credentials for the source code, the image repo and the cluster, and it crosses two logical security boundaries. Learn how you can mitigate this with a GitOps approach.

GitOps: High velocity CICD for Kubernetes
This blog post explains techniques for development teams who strive for high velocity continuous delivery using Kubernetes and Docker. When we say “high velocity” we mean that every product team can safely ship updates many times a day — deploy instantly, observe the results in real time, and use this feedback to roll forward or back. The goal is for product teams to use continuous experimentation to improve the customer experience as fast as possible.
