Agile DevOps East Serverless Security: Overcome Architectural Security Challenges
Slideshow

Serverless architectures take the idea of microservices to the extreme. To implement secure serverless architectures, you have to understand how to compartmentalize programs at the function level. You also need to factor in security practices: Serverless architectures are susceptible to traditional attacks such as SQL injection and command injection, along with a wide variety of privilege escalation and sensitive data disclosure attacks. Developers must consider what would happen if an attacker attempted to invoke each of their functions directly. What if one of those functions were to become nonresponsive? Designing, implementing, and maintaining serverless architectures dramatically increases the complexity of security. Join Eric Sheridan as he discusses how to implement distributed, secure identity management and entitlement enforcement across 250+ functions.

Agile DevOps East Modern Security with Microservices and the Cloud
Slideshow

It's great that you've moved to microservices, but how are you handling security and distributing secrets? Traditional architectures use perimeter-based security, but you can't exactly wrap the cloud in your own personal firewall. Many organizations are practicing "lift and shift" to leverage the cloud, but then find themselves at the end of failed compliance audits. Seth Vargo will highlight the new security challenges associated with using cloud technologies and microservices, then showcase techniques for solving those challenges.

DevOps West 2018, Agile Dev West 2018, Better Software West 2018 Managing Microservices Using Terraform, Docker, and the Cloud
Slideshow

Much has been written about how to write microservices, but not enough about how to effectively deploy and manage them. Microservices architecture multiplies the number of deployables IT has to manage by at least ten. In that world, tooling to manage cloud deployments and related infrastructure has become essential for success, and Terraform and Docker are increasingly being leveraged to facilitate microservices environments. Derek Ashmore will share his hard-learned best practices for deploying and managing microservices in production. He will leverage true infrastructure as code using Terraform, the leading coding framework for building and managing change in cloud environments. That code is easily reused and makes it simple to deploy and scale software, including Docker images. You will learn not only how to establish that environment initially, but how changes can be effectively managed.

BSE Testing Eliminate Cloud Waste with a Holistic DevOps Strategy
Slideshow

Chris Parlette maintains that renting infrastructure on demand is the most disruptive trend in IT in decades. In 2016, enterprises spent $23B on public cloud IaaS services. By 2020, that figure is expected to reach $65B. The public cloud is now used like a utility, and like any utility...
