Course Overview:

Through an introduction to Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift Platform, this training course helps you understand one of the key tenets of the DevOps and DevSecOps Platform (DSOP) movement: continuous integration and continuous deployment. The CI/CD pipeline becomes well understood and implemented in an open architecture.  Containers have become a key technology for the configuration and deployment of applications and micro services. Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform that provides foundational services in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, which allows enterprises to manage container deployments and scale their applications using Kubernetes.

This training course provides an overview of the DoD Enterprise DevSecOps Platform (DSOP) Reference Design, its current state, and ties to DoD Cloud Platform One (P1). Workflows of the DoD Iron Bank container repository are introduced, along with an overview of the DoD Pipeline as represented in Big Bang.  Continuous authorization cATO via Party Bus within NIST RMF is presented. You will become aware of the Platform One (P1) integrations and relationship to Docker, Kubernetes, Istio (Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh) and Red Hat OpenShift Platform.

In addition to gaining an understanding of these tools, you will build core administration skills through the installation, configuration, and management of an OpenShift cluster and containerized applications.
