Shift Left methodologies are increasingly being discussed in the broader Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem. It is essentially the practice of bringing in security considerations much earlier in the application development process and, as such, can perhaps be seen simply as a new way of talking about DevSecOps. However, Shift Left has additional connotations, and these are strongly linked to the emerging mantra that is CI/CD: Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD). Much of this forms part of the new pressures for application development as associated with cloud infrastructures and as-a-service delivery models, driven by the advent of low-power wide-area networks and 5G connectivity (such as for massive-machine-type communications) and the pivot toward cloud-native and software-centric applications.
