GitHub Actions is an API that’s used to automate, customize, and execute software development workflows right in your GitHub repository. Developers and security professionals have found ways to use it to implement automation and CI/CD workflows in DevSecOps.
This course is a deep dive into the use of GitHub Actions in DevSecOps, with practical learning through hands-on labs. We begin with an introduction to both DevSecOps and GitOps. This will transition into a practical segment where you’ll create your own custom GitHub Actions. You’ll even learn to create an Actions-driven workflow for Continuous Integration.
We then explore DevSecOps with GitHub Actions with the help of cookbook-style labs. Here, you’ll implement end-to-end SAST and SCA workflows, as well as automate DAST Checks with GitHub Actions and OWASP ZAP.
This course is a distillation of years of security testing experience, knowledge, and original research across our entire team. We’ve designed our material and labs to reflect real-world techniques and challenges, making it easy for you to gain serious practical experience in automating DevSecOps workflows. When you’ve completed this course, you can implement what you’ve learned in effectively implementing Security in DevOps.
