Conference/Workshop Paper


The 18th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2023)


VeriDevOps offers a methodology and a set of integrated mechanisms that significantly improve automation in DevOps to protect systems at operations time and prevent security issues at development time by (1) specifying security requirements, (2) generating trace monitors, (3) locating root causes of vulnerabilities, and (4) identifying security flaws in code and designs. This paper presents a methodology that enhances productivity and enables the continuous integration/delivery of trustworthy systems. We outline the methodology, its application to relevant scenarios, and offer recommendations for engineers and managers adopting the VeriDevOps approach. Practitioners applying the VeriDevOps methodology should include security modeling in the DevOps process, integrate security verification throughout all stages, utilize automated test generation tools for security requirements, and implement a comprehensive security monitoring system, with regular review and update procedures to maintain relevance and effectiveness.
