Section: Crisp talk Technical level: Intermediate Session type: Lecture
Kubernetes is currently the most popular container orchestration engine of choice, but its security is debatable. There are some vulnerabilities that have already been discovered in Kubernetes and Docker. The question that arises is what are the potential risks of these vulnerabilities to the application/business, and how we can go about fixing these.
The talk will also cover what are some of the best security practices that should be followed while designing and implementing Kubernetes within an organisation.
The outline of the talk would be roughly as follows:
1. How vulnerable is your Kubernetes cluster.
2. Past known vulnerabilities in Kubernetes and their potential Risks.
3. How to fix these known vulnerabilities.
4. Security Best Practises to be followed while designing a Kubernetes cluster .
Basic knowledge of Kubernetes,Container technologies is expected. This session will focus on real world security threats associated with Kubernetes and how we can follow some best practises to make our Kubernetes clusters more secure.
