We discuss how you can use a DNS service like F5 DNS Load Balancer Cloud service to implement three methods for seamlessly and safely deploying application updates to production environments: blue-green, rolling blue-green, and canary releases.
F5 Essential App Protect is a simple, pay-as-you-go, SaaS-based security service for securing apps proxied by NGINX and NGINX Plus. Based on F5’s 20+ years of app security expertise, it's a DevOps-ready service that protects against the security threats faced by modern apps.
We explain how to run NGINX Plus in compliance with the FIPS 140-2 Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules standard, which specifies the cryptographic protocols that are accepted by the U.S. Federal government and many other organizations.
With the Fortanix Self-Defending Key Management Service, you can offload TLS crytographic processing from your NGINX and NGINX Plus servers, and safely store your TLS keys for on-demand uploading into the NGINX Plus key-value store. We provide complete instructions for both use cases.
Three NGINX customers replaced a legacy API management solution with NGINX Controller. We highlight the challenge faced by each customer and how Controller solves it, while delivering self-service, super-low latencies, and integration of API management into CI/CD pipelines.
We present a reference architecture for real-time APIs, based on work with NGINX’s largest, most demanding customers. We encompass all aspects of the API management solution but go deeper on the API gateway which is responsible for ensuring real-time performance.
The first NGINX for Good hackathon takes place September 14-17, 2020, coinciding with the NGINX Sprint virtual conference. Working with a team, you'll build a website or application that helps others. The winning app will be hosted by NGINX for six months.
We explore two use cases for filesystem isolation in NGINX Unit. First, we stop attackers from accessing sensitive information, by restricting a compromised app to its sandbox directory. Second, we toggle between sets of global dependencies by defining them in separate filesystems.
With NGINX Plus Ingress Controller for Kubernetes release 1.8.0, NGINX App Protect can be embedded in the Ingress Controller. This puts WAF protection closer to applications, which is crucial in modern app environments like Kubernetes. It also enables automation and reduces complexity and cost.
The NGINX Controller API Management Module helps you solve the challenges of producing quality API documentation and keeping it in sync with multiple published API versions. Its centralized publishing process integrates the documentation into in your API development and maintenance workflows.
