Containers are relatively new to IT; they package software and dependencies in a single binary which are able to run reliably in multiple environments. Containers have grown in popularity to a point where Kubernetes have been created as an open-source container management system.
Like many other IT resources, Containers and Kubernetes are reliable only if configured properly by knowledgeable IT personnel. Without adequate safeguards, they open vulnerabilities that enable attackers to compromise critical systems.
This presentation will address common threats to Containers and Kubernetes and solutions to mitigate those threats. Basic demonstrations will be included.
