Best practices to secure applications in cloud

Submitted by priyanka vergadia (@priyankavergadia) on Sunday, 7 April 2019

Section: Full talk Technical level: Beginner

Abstract

Security in cloud should be approched a little differently than traditional on-premise security. In cloud, security is a shared responsibility of the customer and the cloud service provider. This talk with highlight how one should secure the applications and infrastructure in cloud.

Outline

The talk will focus on different layers of attacks that an application can face and will cover in detail how to apply securtiy measures on each layer to protect from attacks. Will introduce the concept of defence in depth or zero trust infrastructure where every element of the infrastructre is designed such that it is an untrusted element. This helps keep the infrastructure secure at each layer. I will talk about examples of how to protect each layer of the cloud application including hardware, Boot, OS, Storage, network, application deployment, operation and usage.

    Thanks for submitting this proposal, Priyanka. The audience at Rootconf consists of hands-on DevOps practitioners and engineers. Participants attending Rootconf will find the proposed topic to be very introductory. We’d prefer a more deep dive talk, with case studies, which will help the audience to understand patterns and anti-patterns.
