We live in a world where every time you share information online it is at significant risk of being compromised. Responsibility for protecting that data falls to everyone -- developers, architects and providers. With security at the forefront of everyone's concern, how are cloud providers meeting these security concerns while still allowing businesses to rapidly provision services to meet business needs on-demand?
In this meetup we'll review container security: the concepts, tips and tricks, and see what others in the industry are doing. Overall, we'll analyse general attack surfaces of containers, to understand how best to minimize this surface area. Specific attack vectors and known exploits will be looked at, and we can see how to prevent these. To illustrate by example, we'll build out a website frontend and backend that needs to process sensitive personal information, and have it protected in flight and at rest.
