The book titled "CyberSecurity in a DevOps Environment: From Requirements to Monitoring" has been published recently due to the VeriDevOps project. The editors are experts including Cristina Seceleanu External link. from Mälardalens University, Andrey Sadovykh External link., and Alessandra Bagnato External link. from Softeam, the renowned technology consulting company from France. Dragos Truscan External link. at Åbo Akademi University, Finnland. and Wissam Mallouli External link. and Ana Rosa Cavalli External link. from the French company, Montimage. The book marks a significant step in strengthening the cybersecurity foundations within the software development industry.

This groundbreaking work promises to inspire developers, security professionals, and researchers to approach software security analysis with renewed enthusiasm and vigor, ultimately paving the way for a more secure digital landscape.

VeriDevOps, funded by the EU, focuses on efficient system engineering that integrates development, delivery, and operations to achieve quality deliveries with short cycle times to address constantly evolving challenges. By using modern and secure components, we can build systems that are resilient to security threats. DevOps encourages us to deliver software frequently, which drives us to improve our verification methods and artifacts continuously.

The intricate dimensions of security requirements, prevention during development, and protection CyberSecurity in a DevOps Environment is a three-part masterpiece that meticulously explores operational environments. The book is an invaluable resource for strengthening software systems and protecting them from threats and vulnerabilities.

Part I: Security Requirements Engineering

The first section of this book explores the critical discipline of Security Requirements Engineering, offering a formalized approach to identifying, analyzing, and specifying security requirements. With a focus on the latest advancements in taxonomies and Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods applied to security requirements, the book provides practical insights into managing security requirements effectively. Through illustrative examples, readers can gain a deeper understanding of integrating these methods to streamline the security requirement engineering process.

Part II: Prevention at Development Time

The second part shifts the spotlight to preventing vulnerabilities during the software development process. A comprehensive survey of existing vulnerability detection and response methods sets the stage for two novel approaches to security test generation and vulnerability identification in source code. Tailored for industrial systems, these approaches promise to revolutionize how software developers design, develop, and verify secure applications.

Part III: Protection at Operations

The concluding part focuses on implementing cutting-edge real-time security enhancement and risk mitigation techniques. Intrusion detection and anomaly detection take center stage as crucial protection components in operations. Leveraging complex event processing, these mechanisms analyze and correlate events in real time to identify patterns and detect potential threats. Explainability becomes paramount in aiding security professionals to interpret the decision-making process of detection algorithms, ensuring a comprehensive and robust approach to protection in operational environments.

CyberSecurity in a DevOps Environment presents the current state of software security analysis and guides future research in this emerging field. This comprehensive guide is a must-read for anyone seeking to navigate the intricate cybersecurity landscape in the DevOps era.
