Securing Containers and Kubernetes-Orchestrated Environments
Containers are a big revolution in the software industry. They bring production to the local environment without thinking about compatibilities: with a few commands anyone can have containers running on their machines. When using containers locally, they seem to be neither complex nor complicated to secure and developers have the power of packaging applications that will behave exactly as tested. Enterprises can then split them into scalable microservices.
However, this changes when the ecosystem grows dramatically and thousands of containers with a variety of roles and flavors are orchestrated to maintain availability. While these huge environments have great benefits, their complexity enlarges the attack surface exponentially. Just through a single misconfiguration of some of the infinite customization features they offer, chaos can arise. So, what can be done to protect these containerized realms?
This webcast will explain the implementation of advanced security features to secure the Docker daemon and its core components, container execution and Kubernetes-orchestrated environments.
