CNPDX April: Securing Docker and KataContainers


Apr 27, 2018, 1:00 – 3:30 AM

In-person event

About this event

For April, we are all about the Container Security!

First, Chris Foster will share his tips for Security Docker on the Cheap. Better Docker security doesn't have to use expensive tools to achieve. Following a few security practices and using DE built-in features, along with some free, open source tools, can significantly raise the standard. We'll take a look at some things that can bring higher security without breaking the budget.

Next, Eric Ernst will demo KataContainers, a way to combine hardware virtualization with Kubernetes containers for more isolated, secure services without sacrificing startup times. In this talk he'll provide some background on the Kata Containers project and describe how Kata Containers works with CRI-O and Kubernetes. Then, he'll walk you through creating a K8S configuration which uses a mix of runc and Kata containers to secure workloads with varying levels of trust.

This meetup is generously hosted by Puppet.

Food and drink is sponsored by the KataContainers Project of the OpenStack Foundation.
