Kubernetes is an excellent solution for building a flexible and scalable infrastructure to run dynamic workloads. However, as our cluster expands, we might face the inevitable situation of scaling and managing multiple clusters concurrently. This notion can introduce a lot of complexity for our day-to-day workload maintenance and adds difficulty to keep all our policies and services up to date in all environments.

Metrics are important for a microservices application running on Kubernetes because they provide visibility into the health and performance of the application. This visibility can be used to troubleshoot problems, optimize the application, and ensure that it is meeting its SLAs. Some of the challenges that metrics solve for microservices applications running on Kubernetes include: Calico is the most adopted technology for Kubernetes networking and security.

At Kubecon 2023 in Amsterdam, Azure made several exciting announcements and introduced a range of updates and new options to Azure-CNI (Azure Container Networking Interface). These changes will help Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) users to solve some of the pain points that they used to face in previous iterations of Azure-CNI such as IP exhaustion and big cluster deployments with custom IP address management (IPAM).

Tigera provides the industry’s only active Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) with full-stack observability for containers, Kubernetes, and cloud. Calico prevents, detects, troubleshoots, and automatically mitigates exposure risks of security issues in build, deploy, and runtime stages across multi-cluster, multi-cloud, and hybrid deployments. Calico works with popular managed Kubernetes services such as AKS, EKS, and GKE, as well as self-managed Kubernetes distributions including Red Hat OpenShift, SUSE/Rancher, VMware Tanzu, and Mirantis.

Attackers are continuously evolving their techniques to target Kubernetes. They are actively using Kubernetes and Docker functionality in addition to traditional attack surfaces to compromise, gain required privileges and add a backdoor entry to the clusters. A combination of Kubernetes security and observability tools is required to ensure the cloud infrastructure monitoring and lockdown and to enable DevSecOps teams with the right tools for the job.

It’s a daunting task starting down the path to securing your workloads running on Kubernetes in the Cloud. There are no shortages of vendors with great tools in the Cloud security space. There is a multitude of domains that must be accounted for, along with internal challenges in bringing an organization along into new ways of thinking. This talk will focus on Discover’s Cloud security journey, with an overview of how the program has evolved over the last 4 years, key capabilities & concepts that have been embraced and challenges faced.
  |  By Tigera
Containers, Microservices, and cloud-based applications have revolutionized the way companies build and deliver products globally. This has also changed the attack surface and requires very different security strategies and tools to avoid exposure to sensitive information and other cyber attacks. Regulatory compliance has also evolved making it ever so important for companies to adapt to this new paradigm.

Join us as we look at the advantages, but also the practical challenges, of applying modern, policy-as-code ("PaC") approaches in a modern cloud-ready enterprise. This talk will show how Morgan Stanley is drawing upon years of experience in its own proprietary implementation of PaC in its approach to embracing today's ideas. We will look at a diverse set of considerations from GitOps as a method to applying PaC in modern software development and deployment to enforcement of best practices and compliance in the Cloud.

Security as an afterthought is no longer an option and must be deeply embedded in the design and implementation of the products that will be running in the cloud. It is increasingly more critical for many security teams to be almost, if not equally, knowledgeable of the emerging and rapidly evolving technology. Join Manish Sampat from Tigera, as explores the topic in detail with Stan Lee from Paypal.

Compliance automation is a commonly overlooked area of Kubernetes observability. The question is: how do you automate compliance to a security framework that isn’t well understood by DevSecOps teams to begin with? This lack of understanding contributes to mismanaged compliance efforts and in a worst-case scenario, audit exposures and organizational risk. This talk will walk through an example of how to 1) map compliance controls to specific Kubernetes technical configuration 2) automate the assessment of those controls 3) visualize the assessment results. DevSecOps teams will better understand how to incorporate compliance automation alongside security automation.

"Companies of various sizes are building their applications on Kubernetes because it provides significant operational benefits like autoscaling, self-healing, extensibility, and declarative deployment style. However, the operational benefits are only a starting point down the path of building a secure and observable platform that enables the continuous delivery of application workloads. This session shows how to build a fully operational platform, leveraging platform-oriented building blocks to address network security and observability.

Using simplicity to deliver the performance, stability, and manageability for application connectivity at scale in cloud native platforms such as Kubernetes.

Kubernetes is being adopted by every major enterprise on the planet for deploying modern, containerized applications. However, containers are highly dynamic and break their existing security models. Tigera provides zero-trust network security and continuous compliance for Kubernetes platforms that enables enterprises to meet their security and compliance requirements.

Tigera’s technology is recognized and trusted as the de facto standard for Kubernetes network security. Our open source software, Tigera Calico, provides production-grade security, and our commercial offerings layer on advanced security capabilities, enterprise controls, and compliance reporting.

Kubernetes Requires a Modern Approach to Security and Compliance:

  • Zero-Trust Network Security: With 40% or more of all breaches originating from within the network, you must always have to assume that something has been compromised. Applications running on Kubernetes make heavy use of the network for service to service communication. However, most clusters have been left wide open and are vulnerable to attack. A zero trust approach is the most secure way to lock down your Kubernetes platform.
  • Continuous Compliance: Kubernetes is dynamic and constantly changing. Moments after a compliance audit is completed the environment will have changed again. A continuous compliance solution is the only way to prove that your security controls have been implemented properly now and historically.
  • Visibility and Traceability: Applications running on Kubernetes Platforms have constantly changing IP addresses and locations that makes it impossible to use traditional flow logs to debug issues and investigate anomalous activity. The only accurate approach is to use Kubernetes labels and workload identity in your netflow logs.
  • Multi-cloud and Legacy: Many applications running on Kubernetes will not be greenfield. Applications often need to communicate securely with other systems outside of the cluster, such as on-premises or cloud-based VMs, bare metal servers and databases. To achieve zero trust security for Kubernetes, your security policies must be capable of expanding beyond the cluster.
