Next week (Dec. 6-8), Austin will become all things Kubernetes and Cloud Native as the community comes together for three days to take on some of the biggest issues and advancements in cloud native computing at KubeCon and CloudNativeCon.
One of the topics on many attendees’ minds, especially with such rapid adoption of cloud native environments, is security. Many cyber practitioners are applying five-year-old security models to this newly evolving and transformative technology and that type complacency will quickly lead to big trouble (and breaches) down the line.
Capsule8 co-founder and CTO, Dino Dai Zovi, will be tackling some of these issues in his session, “Preventing Attacks at Scale” on Thursday, December 7 at 11:55 am – 12:55 pm in Meeting Room 12AB, Level 4.
According to Dino, security hardening for containers, clusters, and operating systems is a very important part of setting up infrastructure and always “Plan A.” The world of “Plan A” defends the importance of making sure your cluster is set up securely. But Dino comes from the world of “Plan B” and his session will focus on detecting when security boundaries have been breached. This is necessary for environments where you don’t have the ability to ensure base OS is fully patched, etc.
Dino will be exploring the world of Linux kernel features such as seccomp, eBPF, kprobes and Kubernetes tunable security features and helping attendees learn how to detect and defend against attacks at scale.
If you’re in Austin for KubeCon or CloudNativeCon, we hope to see you there! If you’re unable to attend but are interested in how you can better detect when security boundaries have been breached in your cloud native environment, please feel free to reach out to info at capsule8 dot com.
