Modern security with microservices and the cloud

Day 1 /  / Track 2  /  EN / For practicing engineers

This talk has two primary goals:

  1. Identify the new security challenges associated with using cloud technologies and microservices.
  2. Showcase how the free and open source tool, Vault, can help reduce those security challenges.

Topics include:

  • Discussion of traditional security (perimeter security, firewalls, etc);
  • Identifying new challenges and solutions in cloud and microservices security;
  • Describe Vault’s architecture and how it provides "secrets as a service";
  • Storing static secrets such as WiFi credentials;
  • Generating dynamic secrets, such as database passwords or cloud credentials;
  • Providing encryption as a service.
