With the advent of Kubernetes and microservices, the attack surfaces have increased and that necessitates a more holistic and disciplined approach towards security. While there is a lot of FUD around container security in general and Kubernetes security, in particular, and often referred to as “insecure by default” there are ways to harden security on a deployed cluster today by taking a shift-left approach.

Attend this session to understand practices for secure development and deployment including a discussion on configuration parameters and how to incorporate security principles such as least privilege, authorization, etc. via runAsUser, readOnlyRootFilesystem and disallowPrivilegeEscalation besides scanning images for known vulnerabilities. We will also look at platforms built atop Kubernetes like Helm and Istio from a security perspective time permitting.

After attending this session, intended for developers, admins and devops audience attendees alike they will get a good understanding of the challenges of Kubernetes security and related platforms, how the shift-left approach helps to minimize attack surface and how to incorporate best practices, configuration parameters, etc. into your pipeline and to be able to secure the Kubernetes clusters and workloads.
