Following on from an earlier post about incorporating penetration testing with OWASP ZAP into an Azure DevOps pipeline, I am going to talk about how to add vulnerability checks for your ARM Templates to a release pipeline.
One of the most effective ways of enhancing the security posture of a solution is to incorporate security into the development lifecycle and embed it within the normal CI/CD pipelines of a project. In this post I am going to look at the Passive Pentest stage of the CI/CD Pipeline.
