Look inside

You’re a senior developer at Travel World Agency (TWA). As its success has grown, so have computing costs. But before introducing potentially disruptive cost-cutting measures into its next-gen system running on Amazon Web Services (AWS), it needs to improve the quality of its microservices. Your task is to detect possible security problems using Sonar, then use Dependency-Check and Dependency-Track to analyze the dependencies and add rules to define how many vulnerabilities your microservices might have with the ongoing execution of the pipeline.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.

project author

Andres Sacco

Andres Sacco is a technical leader at Prisma who has experience with many different languages including Java, PHP, and Node.js. At his previous job, Andres helped to find alternative ways to optimize data transfer between microservices, which reduced the cost of infrastructure by 55%. Before introducing these optimizations, he investigated different testing methods for better coverage than unit tests of the microservices. He also dictated internal courses about new technologies and has written articles on Medium. Andres is a co-author of the book Beginning Scala 3, from Apress.

prerequisites

This liveProject is for Java developers who are interested in learning different ways to implement security validations in their microservices. To begin this liveProject, you should be familiar with the following:

TOOLS
  • Any Java IDE: Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio Code
  • Basic Maven
  • Basic Spring and Spring Boot
  • Basic Docker and Docker Compose
  • Basic Jenkins
TECHNIQUES
  • Basic Java
  • Basic Spring Boot and how to add new modules
  • Basic Docker and Docker Compose commands
  • REST principles
  • Basic knowledge of microservices

you will learn

In this liveProject, you’ll learn to implement security validations that check for vulnerabilities in microservices, including in their individual blocks of code.

  • Use Dependency-Check to identify the vulnerabilities in a microservice on your local machine or in your pipeline
  • Use Dependency-Track to identify vulnerabilities between different microservices in one place and to add rules to define a quality gate for the security issues
  • Add analysis in the Jenkins pipeline
