Mastering Container Security: Docker, Kubernetes and More

Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT

Containers provide a simple way to abstract applications into ‘run-anywhere’ packages. This simplicity and ease of use makes containerization popular with developers, but also with IT practitioners, as they can run the same containers atop ‘utility compute’ public cloud services or in-house virtualized servers. But from a security perspective, the generic appearance and opacity of containers make it more difficult to easily determine what is inside.

This live webcast will cover some of the common vulnerabilities containers expose and provide pragmatic advice on how to integrate security within agile CI/CD build processes. Whether your container use is on-premise, cloud-native IaaS, or anything in between, this webcast will help you discover what resides in your containers and add security into the build and deployment process.

Cybersecurity experts from Tripwire and Securosis, a cloud information security research and advisory firm, will walk you through essential tips on container assessments and streamlined DevOps security. You’ll also get a quick introduction to Tripwire for DevOps, the SaaS tool that automates DevOps security with dynamic container analysis right inside your Jenkins dashboard.

Attendees will hear expert advice on:

  • DevOps best practices for quickly resolving security issues
  • Security analysis for source code and web application tools
  • Avoiding misconfigurations without stalling the CI/CD pipeline
