Security and the Self-Contained Unit of Software - Gareth Rushgrove (UK)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Containers, microservices, the 12 factor app methodology, unikernels;
all of these are examples of a theme in modern development towards
both smaller and more self-contained components. These patterns
stretch to breaking point the idea that an edge firewall or
well-configured application server can address all of your security

What does this mean for application security? How can existing
security tools take advantage of these self-contained applications?
Most importantly, what security features or functionality can we move
from the infrastructure to being part of this new unit of software?

In this talk we’ll discuss:

* The advantages and disadvantages of the application as a black box
* Ways of asking questions and aggregating information from across
your new distributed system
* Examples of other operational concerns moving from the
infrastructure to the application, for instance with metrics and
application health information
* The importance of relating build-time and runtime data to fully
understand the state of your system
