Peter Ranks, deputy chief information officer for Information Enterprise at the Department of Defense (DoD), said his office will help DoD track its cybersecurity progress when implementing DevOps software development practices, FCW reported Sunday.

He told the publication that DoD put out models for creating DevOps pipelines and is working on instrumentation that will allow personnel to measure software product quality.

Ranks pointed to the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) as an example of a department component that can leverage Platform One, the U.S. Air Force’s DevSecOps managed services program.

DoD designated the program as one of its enterprise service providers for DevSecOps in May in a move to take security measures into consideration throughout the software development process.

The report noted that Ranks’ office is looking to provide DevSecOps model implementation guidance intended for cyber professionals.
