Cook up applications quickly;
Security doesn’t show up on the list. Unfortunately, things haven’t changed much in ten years.
Over the last year there have been numerous stories about the problem of IoT devices, even medical devices, which have little or no security and can be easily hacked. There were, for example, articles in Wired, ZDNet, ComputerWeekly, and this article with the clever title “The S in IoT is for Security”. The bottom line is that the world of IoT devices is suffering a security crisis.
But it isn’t just IoT. A report by PureSec recently reviewed the state of security in Serverless Open Source Applications.
Ory Segal, co-founder of PureSec, said that “personally, I was surprised by the fact that application security still seems like an afterthought when it comes to serverless architectures. It’s as if everything we’ve learned about application security in the past 20 years didn’t quite stick, or perhaps folks didn’t think it was relevant in the case of serverless.”
