Securing Your Containers
Digitization is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, their supply chains and their people. Digital transformation leverages DevOps best practices, such as Agile Parallel Development, Continuous Delivery and Agile Operations to capitalize on opportunities and create competitive differentiation in the application economy.
However, information security has been notably absent from the DevOps movement. Speed doesn't have to negatively impact security. Container-to-container communication should not be in clear text, yet it is. So why is it so hard to implement good security practices like encryption for DevOps? The primary reason, provisioning of keys and certificates in a DevOps environment takes too long and results in bottlenecks - so people don't use encryption unless they have to.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Mike Dodson, Senior Director Global Solution Engineering at Venafi, will discuss security strategies that can be implemented for CAPS (Chef, Ansible, Puppet, Salt) and Docker and how you can implement encryption easily without causing bottlenecks.
What will attendees learn from attending the session?
He is currently leading the Global Sales Engineering team at Venafi where his team designs solutions to secure and protect keys and certificates for the largest corporations and governments in the world.
