This talk provides an overview of security concerns in the context of Kubernetes. We will focus on security best practices as well as tooling from a developer’s point of view. The goal is to familiarise developers with security features and provide suggestion around the following areas:

  • container image hygiene (how to select base images, OpenSCAP, etc.)
  • handling sensitive data (secrets, auditing)
  • non-privileged containers (based on and PodSecurityPolicy)
  • using Kubernetes RBAC (service accounts, default roles, securing your app)
  • service communication control (Network Policies, Istio) 

All best practices/recipes will be made available via a GitHub repo and I’ll demo some of them live.
