Traditionally, when datacenter operators talk about application security, they've tended to focus on issues related to key management, firewalls and data access. By contrast, application developers have a security focus which is more aligned with code analysis and fuzzing techniques. The reality is, secure application deployment principles extend from the infrastructure layer through the application and include how the application is deployed. With the prevalence of continuous deployment of micro-services, it’s imperative to focus efforts on what attackers’ view as vulnerable; particularly in an environment where new exploits are being disclosed almost daily.
In this session we’ll present:
• How known vulnerabilities can make their way into production deployments
• How deployment of vulnerable code can be minimized
• How to determine the vulnerability status of a container
