An Introduction to Open Policy Agent (OPA)

Chicago
Wed, Aug 25, 2021, 12:00 PM (CDT)

About this event

OPA helps you unify control and visibility of policy enforcement throughout your system. Today you can leverage OPA to enforce policies across the stack of modern projects like Kubernetes, Envoy, Istio, and Terraform as well as with older more established technologies like Linux-PAM.

At this event, our speakers will introduce the OPA project, use cases and integrations, with a little live coding thrown in to make things fun. The session will also include an overview of how you can get started using OPA to govern modern applications and platforms. 

If you are interested in learning how to enforce security polices to microservices and modern applications running on top of Kubernetes, this session is for you. 


🎁 🎁 Two raffle prizes will be given during the event by our sponsor Styra & CloudRoads.
