Level up your security skillset with New Relic
Not every developer is a security expert, but use these tips to improve your skills In today’s digital age, security is a major concern for individuals and organizations alike. With the increasing number of cyber-attacks and data breaches, it’s crucial for developers to have a thorough understanding of security best practices. The security of an application is of the utmost importance, as it can directly impact the safety and privacy of users’ data.
Updated Snyk Webhook Integration with New Relic
In a recent post I wrote about the ability to send all your application security vulnerabilities found by Snyk directly to your New Relic observability platform. Now, New Relic made it even easier to achieve that by providing a dedicated security ingest processor that ‘understands’ the payload from a Snyk webhook. All the details on how to get started, create and configure a Snyk webhook to send into your New Relic account is provided in this docs page: https://docs.
How to send Snyk vulnerability data to the New Relic observability platform
Security and observability data go hand in hand when it comes to application health. If you can put those two sources of data behind a single pane of glass you can make your life a lot easier. By leveraging the different options that the Snyk platform provides, you can send all your application security vulnerabilities found by Snyk directly to your New Relic observability platform. Let’s see how! Prerequisites Here are all the necessary links to get started:
Forward Snyk Vulnerability data to Splunk Observability Cloud
TL;DR Leverage a Prometheus Exporter to send all your application security vulnerabilities from Snyk into Splunk. Here are all the necessary links to get started: Snyk Exporter: https://github.com/lunarway/snyk_exporter Splunk OpenTelemetry Collector for Kubernetes: https://docs.splunk.com/Observability/gdi/opentelemetry/install-k8s.html#otel-install-k8s Update (2022-09-22) The option that I am describing here is just one way to achieve this. There might even be a more straight forward option available that I started to describe in a more recent post.
Observing Dapr applications with New Relic One
It was back in 2019 at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando when I discovered a new project referred to as Distributed Application Runtime, or Dapr for short. This immediately caught my attention and Mark Russinovich did an amazing job presenting this to the audience. Dapr is quite an interesting project for me in many ways. First of all, software architecture is near and dear to my heart and Dapr solves a lot of the challenges developers typically face when designing and implementing applications.
How-To: Set-up New Relic to observe Dapr and it's applications
How-To: Set-up New Relic to collect and observe metrics, traces and logs from Dapr and the underlying applications. Enable Dapr metrics and logs with New Relic Kubernetes integration for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and application traces using OpenTelemetry. Prerequisites Azure Kubernetes Service kubectl An installation of Dapr on Kubernetes Perpetually free New Relic account, 100 GB/month of free data ingest, 1 free full access user, unlimited free basic users Enable New Relic Kubernetes integration The Kubernetes integration monitors worker nodes.
