DevSecOps guidance could be coming soon

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has been discussing the creation of DevSecOps guidance for agencies that would normalize the concept of moving security “left,” back into the software development life cycle. The agency is currently gathering information on products developed using DevSecOps, which is an organizational philosophy combining agile software development, security testing and tools for the rapid delivery of applications and services. Federal Chief Information Officer Suzette Kent said Tuesday that DevSecOps is a long-term workforce priority for the government. “Great concept, but at its core it’s talking about agility and getting the right people that own a part of the delivery life cycle together. As we look into the next decade, we have to continue to do that with our mission and business teams, as well as the constituents that we’re serving.” Dave Nyczepir has more on the potential guidance.

JADC2 won't be a heavy tech lift

As the Air Force looks to connect the military across all domains, it will take more work to build out a new data architecture than it will to get the underlying technology in order, the department’s top software official told FedScoop on Tuesday. “It is all the same” technology, Nicolas Chaillan, chief software officer of the Air Force, told FedScoop of the military’s push for global data interoperability called Joint All-Domain Command and Control, or JADC2. The heavy lift will be the “completely new” open-source data architecture, and how security and data analysis are automated, Chaillan said. That new architecture will be built with the same Kubernetes and containers that the Air Force is using to develop software today. Jackson Barnett talked to Chaillan.

Lawmaker pushes for a more mobile Congress

With the spread of the coronavirus impacting D.C., a lawmaker is reintroducing legislation that would give members of the House the option to work remotely in some scenarios. Rep. Eric Swalwell's measure would allow members to participate in committee hearings without having to be in the room and would “mandate the development of a secure remote voting system” for use only on the noncontroversial legislation that the House does under its “suspension of the rules” calendar. The California Democrat filed the Members Operating to Be Innovative and Link Everyone (MOBILE) Resolution with Rep. Rick Crawford of Arkansas as its top co-sponsor. The legislation would would allow members to "not only spend more time with their constituents and their families, but would prove useful for a number of situations, including the public health crisis in which we currently find ourselves,” Swalwell said in a news release. Joe Warminsky has the story.

Court says AWS is ‘likely to succeed’ in JEDI protest

Amazon has a strong case in its protest of the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) cloud contract and is likely to succeed in showing that the Department of Defense erred, at least in part, in how it evaluated bids for the $10 billion contract, according to the judge ruling on the lawsuit. Court of Federal Claims Judge Patricia Campbell-Smith details in a document unsealed Friday night why she recently decided in Amazon Web Services' favor to order an injunction under JEDI, preventing any further work between the Pentagon and winning bidder Microsoft under the contract while the protest is ongoing. The document shows for the first time that the court may be leaning toward ruling in Amazon’s favor in the protest. However, Campbell-Smith's order only keys in on one specific charge in Amazon’s larger complaint. Among the several evaluation missteps it says DOD made, AWS argues that it erred in evaluating Microsoft’s proposed offering for online storage, which it calls “noncompliant.” Billy Mitchell covered the news.
