Rootconf is HasGeek’s annual conference – and now a growing community – around DevOps, systems engineering, DevSecOps, security and cloud. The annual Rootconf conference takes place in May each year, with the exception of 2019 when the conference will be held in June.
Besides the annual conference, we also run meetups, one-off public lectures, debates and open houses on DevOps, systems engineering, distributed systems, legacy infrastructure, and topics related to Rootconf.
This is the place to submit proposals for your work, and get them peer reviewed by practitioners from the community.
Topics for submission:
We seek proposals – for short and long talks, as well as workshops and tutorials – on the following topics:
- Case studies of shift from batch processing to stream processing
- Real-life examples of service discovery
- Case studies on move from monolith to service-oriented architecture
- Network security
- Monitoring, logging and alerting – running small-scale and large-scale systems
- Cloud architecture – implementations and lessons learned
- Optimizing infrastructure
- Immutable infrastructure
- Aligning people and teams with infrastructure at scale
- Security for infrastructure

Best practices to secure applications in cloud
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.
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.
