Kubernetes Security By Henrik Kramselund, internet samurai & Adjunct @ KEA

How would Kubernetes look from a security point of view, though the glasses of a security person?

Kubernetes has become one of the most popular Cloud Native technologies for container orchestration in self-hosted as well as Public Cloud setups. Kubernetes is often talked about as an absolute thing, or a platform of platforms, however there does not seem to be that much talk about the underlying infrastructure. That is going to be addressed in this session.

The session touches on subjects like: network, surveillance , load- and stress-testing, protection, isolation and diagnosis.

Keywords: Cloud security, DDoS protection, load balancing, logs and audit, cloud monitoring, performance testing


Henrik Kramselund is an internet samurai, has been working with networking- and security since the mid 1990. Henrik typically works in core internet with setting up secure infrastructures with technologies like BGP, routing, firewalls and intrusion detection systems. Henrik is in favour of free access to strong encryption and control of own data.


DevEx, DevContainers, CodeSpaces ...and all that jazz by Lars Kruse, Adjunct Professor of Computer Science @ KEA

Software is eating the world. Both Agile and DevOps are already gulped by software. 
To form an agile team and utilise all the whistles and bells from the paradigms of Continuous Delivery and DevOps today, one ought to simply attend to another of the world’s contemporary buzzes: Developer Experience — DX. Observe and understand the developer’s workflow, and then continuously improve and optimise — weed out waste. This informal hands-on presentation is an exploration of some of the newest and coolest features in GitHub – the world’s largest Developer Platform; CodeSpaces, DevContainers, VS Code Extensions, the GitHub CLI, GitHub Actions... It’s a short practical demonstration on how this cornucopia of a full-fledged DX platform is introduced to new Gen Z coders at Copenhagen School of Design and Technology (KEA). There will be running code from stage - Bring your PC and hack along!


Lars Kruse is a tech savvy generalist, with educational background in Computer Science, Communication theories and Business Coaching. Lars is advocating the elegance and simplicity of Lean principles; Kaizen, holistic view, building quality in, optimising for long perspectives, solving wicked problems and building up a smooth flow by eliminating all kinds of waste. And continuously conducting experiments as a means to facilitate learning, not only as individuals, but even in general or at an organisational level. Lars is a consultant, mentor and advisor at heart and in his work life, he made it his specialty to facilitate and optimise software development processes together with software developers. Creating flows through continuously improving and eliminating waste from processes.


There's free parking(use the parking area marked "KMD") in the area around the venue, but you will have to register your cars license plate upon arrival.
