Observing and Securing Kubernetes Workloads

Kubernetes is becoming very common, and companies everywhere are trying to start using it quickly. However, security is often ignored or delayed, which can seriously threaten the applications running on Kubernetes.

In this workshop, Daniel Bodky will look at common ways Kubernetes can be attacked and how to prevent or fix these issues from the beginning. We will use Cilium, a popular tool for managing container networks, along with Hubble and Tetragon, to secure our clusters‘ networks and runtime environments. Through easy, hands-on sessions, we will learn to secure internal traffic and manage file access and process lifecycles. This workshop is suitable for people with basic Kubernetes knowledge and an interest in cloud-native security.

Reflecting on DevOpsDays Berlin 2024

A week ago, we kicked off this year’s DevOpsDays Berlin. Today we want to reflect on the event, which was a great success.

 

An Insightful Agenda

The conference began with insightful keynote sessions, followed by our Open Spaces in the afternoon. The speakers at DevOpsDays Berlin 2024 covered a wide range of topics that were interesting and important for the DevOps community. They talked about things like how power structures affect teams, the problems with using static credentials, and what we can learn from failed attempts at GitOps. They also discussed product management in DevOps and how to mentor junior engineers. Some speakers even gave quick talks about different subjects, like cyber laws and how to monitor your well-being using technology. The Open Space sessions let everyone discuss these topics more deeply and share their own ideas and experiences. From transitioning to microservices to building new platforms, the speakers gave valuable insights into the world of DevOps.

 

Networking & Socializing

The networking at DevOpsDays Berlin 2024 was lively and helpful. DevOps enthusiasts were talking and sharing, making connections and exchanging ideas during breaks, lunches, and the evening event. These conversations were a big part of the event, making it a great place to meet new people and learn from each other.
