Title: Securing Kubernetes with Admission Controllers
Talk: Organizations are rapidly adopting Kubernetes to more easily develop and manage the applications that drive business value. However, this requires enforcing security in different stages within the lifecycle.
In this session, we will review the security challenge in Kubernetes, and learn about admission controller capabilities and use cases for extending Kubernetes security.
An admission controller allows you to intercept or mutate request to the Kubernetes API before it's persisted as an object in Kubernetes. By utilizing admission controllers to intercept objects we have to the flexibility to enforce enterprise security policies for developers and operators of Kubernetes.
