Did you know you can send alerts from GitHub to Splunk? You might be thinking, why would I bother? One of the main points of Splunk is to centralize your logs and alerts.

Intro Today I want to write about the grype admission controller. I wrote it. I am proud of it. I think it solves a really uncomfortable problem in DevSecOps. Security has a big problem: On one hand, security teams are responsible for making everything secure. That's their job. But on the other hand, they need to somehow do that job while not being directly involved in the production of the code.

The Security Benefits of Podman-in-Docker vs Docker-in-Docker in Gitlab (And How To Set That Up)
