Description

Talk 1: Secure and Monitor your Kubernetes supply chain with Kritis

Insecure, vulnerable packages are everywhere, but how can we make sure they don’t end up running in our clusters? Kritis, is a Kubernetes policy engine, to secure your software supply chain.

In this talk, Tejal and Priya will explain how Kritis uses binary authorization to block deployments with vulnerabilities while constantly monitoring existing deployments, giving users more confidence that their pipeline is secure.

Attendees will learn how to use Kritis to customise their own image security policies, allowing them to enforce specific security requirements throughout their development to production pipelines.
Attendees can use these policies in a variety of situation, including:

  • Blocking images above a vulnerability severity threshold
  • Only deploying images which have been attested by QA
  • Finding the vulnerabilities in your current deployments and much more!


Speakers:
Tejal Desai is a Software Engineer with more than 6 years of experience working on tools in engineering and developer productivity space. She works on GKE developer experience and container tooling products at Google. She is currently leading open source project Kritis. Before joining Google, she worked at Twitter and Yahoo.

Priya Wadhwa is a software engineer on the Container Tools team at Google. She maintains GoogleContainerTools/kaniko and works on a variety of other container tools to help developers build, test, and use containers.

Talk 2: Istio for Resiliency of Microservices

In this talk Marek Sadowski will provide a brief overview of the containers technology that led to Istio. Marek will demonstrate Docker, Kubernetes capabilities, and with the help of Istio he will check the resilience of the microservices of a web application. Attendees will learn:

  • How to build a container based application
  • How to share it through Docker repository
  • How to run in the IBM Cloud
  • How to use Istio for testing the microservice resiliency
