Session Name: Open-source Tools To Secure Your Kubernetes Cluster
Many organizations are shifting to containers and Kubernetes, and that move means learning new ways to secure their environments. Kubernetes clusters have to be hardened at different levels. We have to consider the nodes where the Kubernetes control plane is running. We also need to secure the Kubernetes workloads and check the code that creates them. And we need to inspect the containers we are using for vulnerabilities and watch for unusual behavior. Gene will show you some open-source tools that can find issues and vulnerabilities at each layer. You will see how they can be used to build your Kubernetes cluster safely and keep it secure.
