Creating Modular Jobs in Jenkins

I spent much of my formative years in High School and College being indoctrinated with Object-Orientated Programming (OOP).  When used well, OOP provides clear modular structure for programs, defines clear interfaces, makes software easier to maintain and modify, allows multiple functions to share code (cord re-use), and reduces large, complex issues to smaller, more manageable […]

Cucumber-JVM Within SecureCI
Cucumber

Introduction Now that we have created some simple cucumber tests and built a sturdy selenium framework, we want to setup an environment where these tests can be quickly and conveniently run against our code. Due to the nature of development, code is constantly changing, and we want to ensure that each change to the code […]

Using the Build Flow Plugin in Jenkins

With large complex software applications, builds can often be split into different steps and tasks creating a series of jobs for our build pipeline.   On my current project we are utilizing Jenkins to implement Continuous Integration/Continuous Deliver (CI/CD) and between the jobs for compilation, smoke tests, acceptance tests and deployment across environments in several […]

Running a Jenkins Job on an Amazon EC2 Windows Slave

Continuous integration (CI) is a key component of agile software development that all organizations should strive to include in their development process.  However, for small organizations with little or no infrastructure, purchasing and maintaining a server to use for continuous integration is extremely impractical and often infeasible.  In these situations it is more cost-effective to […]

Integrating CAT.NET into Hudson for Continuous Security Analysis

I recently published an article about using CAT.NET security scanner on your .NET web application. Once you get it running, it’s fairly simple to integrate it into your continuous integration process. Our strategy here will be to use a down-stream job in Hudson to run static security analysis on our application build after the main compilation/packaging […]

Using CAT.NET security scanner on your .NET web application

Inspecting source code for security vulnerabilities is an important part in any secure development process. While this can be done manually, it’s much easier to start with a static analysis tool that can scan code for known vulnerabilities. Statistics out there claim anywhere from 30-50% of coding vulnerabilities can be found with a code scanner. For .NET […]

SecureCI: Enforce Formatting On Your SVN Comments

Most of us like things done the right way and (more often than not) our way. Nothing can be more infuriating than looking through poorly documented logs or code, and trying to understand poor documentation and what it was meant to get across. During development we often look to setting up good coding practices that […]

SecureCI: Enforce Formatting On Your SVN Comments

The focus of continuous delivery isn’t just about being quicker when developing and deploying, but rather delivering business value continuously. And we only see business value from software when it is made available to end users. I heard a project lead explain that his team had a continuous delivery process. They used source control management […]
