Who’s Really Talking? Observing and controlling the inter-application traffic in your cluster.
In this discussion we will talk about the concepts around micro-segmentation, but focusing on the visibility that this approach can bring you in your cluster. Who’s talking to whom, and what are they saying? Should that be allowed or not?

Auth Under the Observability Microscope
How well do you know your auth code? How much do you trust that it behaves the way you expect?
In this talk, I’ll demonstrate how to instrument a standard auth flow with distributed tracing so that you can learn more about how it currently works and better observe the impact of changes. After the initial demo, I’ll delve into what new possibilities might be built on data collected through observability. How can we leverage tracing to improve anomaly detection? What scary but necessary auth changes become safer?
Prepare to walk away with an improved understanding of how to fuse development and security tools together to improve the experiences of both!
Note that while the talk assumes some prior security knowledge, especially with respect to common auth flows such as OAuth2, you should be able to follow along without much background.
