The DoD Enterprise DevSecOps Initiative (DSOP) is a joint effort of the DOD's Chief Information Officer (DCIO), Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment, and the Military Services. The purpose of the DSOP is to bring automated software tools, services and standards to DOD programs so that warfighters can create, deploy, and operate software applications in a secure, flexible, and interoperable manner. Platform One is the DoD-wide DevSecOps Enterprise Level Service that provides software factories and program offices with managed IT services capabilities, on-boarding, and support. Platform One enables users to start their software work with a 90% solution instead of reinventing the wheel. Other benefits include avoiding vendor lock-in, baked-in Zero Trust security, and delivering capabilities to the warfighter at the speed of relevance.
