Service Mesh & Zero Trust Kubernetes Security – William Morgan – ASW #192
The zero trust approach can be applied to almost every technology choice in the modern enterprise, and Kubernetes is no exception. For Kubernetes network security particularly, adopting a zero trust model involves some radical changes, including moving from a security perimeter defined by firewalls, IP addresses, and cluster boundaries to a granular approach that treats the network itself as adversarial and moves the security boundary down to the pod level. William will discuss why the zero trust approach is increasingly necessary for comprehensive Kubernetes security, the dos and don’ts when adopting Kubernetes, the implications for operators and security teams, and where tooling like service mesh plays a role.
