What Security Tools Miss

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Thu, 11/12/2015 - 17:00

Static analysis tools, dynamic analysis tools, and PEN testing tools are all essential weapons against the “bad guys.”  But for the 78% of companies worldwide that use open source software in their application development these tools are ineffective in identifying and mitigating open source security risks across their application portfolios.
Join Mike Pittenger, VP of Product Strategy at Black Duck Software as he discusses what these tools miss and how to:

  • Automate the identification of all the open source – including code snippets –  throughout their code base
  • Automatically map known open source security vulnerabilities to the open source that is in use
  • Accelerate the triage process and track remediation
  • Continuously and dynamically monitor all open source in the code for newly identified vulnerabilities.

The Dark Art of Container Monitoring | @DevOpsSummit @Sysdig #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - 55 min 29 sec ago
Containers are revolutionizing the way we deploy and maintain our infrastructures, but monitoring and troubleshooting in a containerized environment can still be painful and impractical. Understanding even basic resource usage is difficult - let alone tracking network connections or malicious activity. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gianluca Borello, Sr. Software Engineer at Sysdig, will cover the current state of the art for container monitoring and visibility, including pros / cons and live demonstrations of each method. Special emphasis will be put on sysdig, an open source troubleshooting tool. Sysdig offers unprecedented container visibility without the need to break the "sanctity" of the container.

Python 2 and Python 3 | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Python #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 10/09/2015 - 07:00
If you are new to Python, you might be confused about the different versions that are available. Although Python 3 is the latest generation of the language, many programmers still use Python 2.7, the final update to Python 2, which was released in 2010. There is currently no clear-cut answer to the question of which version of Python you should use; the decision depends on what you want to achieve. While Python 3 is clearly the future of the language, some programmers choose to remain with Python 2.7 because some older libraries and packages only work in Python 2.

Massive Parallel Procssing of Data with SCOPE | @CloudExpo #BigData

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 10/09/2015 - 07:00
SCOPE is an acronym for Structured Computations Optimized for Parallel Execution, a declarative language for working with large-scale data. It is still under development at Microsoft. If you know SQL then working with SCOPE will be quite easy as SCOPE builds on SQL. The execution environment is different from that RDBMS oriented data. Data is still modeled as rows. Every row has typed columns and eveyr rowset has a well-defined schema. There is a SCOPe compiler that comes up with optimized execution plan and a runtime execution plan.

Transaction-Centric NPM | @CloudExpo #APM #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 10/09/2015 - 06:45
In my last post, I wrote about the value of IT / business collaboration, and the importance of a common language, a common definition of end-user experience – user transaction response time – as the one performance metric both IT and business have in common. In it, I provided some background on the importance of understanding exactly how we define response time, since this definition dictates the usefulness of the measurement. For the sake of brevity, I’ll summarize three common definitions here:
