Notes from Container World 2017 in Santa Clara, CA
Banyan was a sponsor and participant at Container World 2017 held from 21-23 Feb 2017 in Santa Clara, CA. Here's a summary of our panel session on security for containers and microservices, as well as brief notes on a few other interesting presentations.
The case for novelty: securing the dynamic attack surface of cloud-native applications and microservices
As enterprises adopt agile cloud-native and microservice architectures, security teams are being challenged to continuously protect a dynamic sprawling attack surface. This new challenge also gives us the exciting opportunity to innovate and re-think security processes and technologies.
Over 30% of Official Images in Docker Hub Contain High Priority Security Vulnerabilities
We performed a detailed study on images in Docker Hub to understand how vulnerable they are to security threats. Surprisingly, we found that more than 30% of images from Official repos are highly susceptible to a variety of security attacks (e.g., Shellshock, Heartbleed, Poodle, etc.).
Let's get things kicked off.
