DevSecOps Workshop


*Sponsored Labs will not have an on-demand recording available*

NGINX DevSecOps 101 is an overview, demo, and hands on installation of NGINX App Protect and NGINX Plus technical training where you will gain hands-on experience is a live environment. We will start by deploying a modern application to K8S and discuss what NGINX Ingress Controllers do, then we will "shift left" and deploy a container with the WAF security policy in a CI/CD pipeline using the tools below. No previous experience with NGINX is required, we will start at a high level to get everyone on the same page.

Workshop Overview:

  • Deploy a full micro-service-based application to a Kubernetes cluster
  • Publish the application with NGINX Plus Ingress Controller and monitor with the real time dashboard
  • Build and deploy NGINX App Protect Docker image to protect the application
  • Monitor the environment with the k8s dashboards and check the logs in an ELK stack
  • Make changes to the environment by triggering a change in GitLab event with Jenkins
