Talk Information:
Implementing Zero Trust Networks for Kubernetes
For cloud native applications, the network is simultaneously the all-important life blood as well as a hotbed of attacks. Distribution to microservices and increased sophistication of attackers are driving that tension higher and higher. Zero Trust Networking is a set of design principles for dealing with these threats by reducing trust in the network as much as possible. It upends the traditional zone-based view of network security in favor of the assumption that every network and every workload could be compromised. “Trusted” networks are replaced by strong cryptographic verification of each network flow. Spike will introduce Zero Trust Networks and demonstrate how to use open source software like SPIFFE, Envoy, Istio and Kubernetes Network Policy to build a Zero Trust Kubernetes Network. He will also discuss organizational processes to build and maintain it.
