This week: Demystifying K8s for Teams, and an Introduction to Open Policy Agent

This week, we bring you two new heavy-hitting articles.

Our newest Write for Cloud-Native community expert, Tony Chong (VP of Engineering at Vungle, former CTO of Gawkbox), wrote a deep-dive into adopting Kubernetes and Docker for teams. If you have had trouble adopting containers or container orchestration as a team, Tony shares some lessons that can help. Read more.

Magalix Founder and CEO Mohamed Ahmed also kicked off our series on Open Policy Agent. OPA is a framework to unify policy enforcement across technologies. OPA is also a part of the Magalix agent, and can help you manage security policy. Read more.

As always, if you'd like to write for our blog, share your knowledge, and grow the cloud-native community, apply here. We pay up to $200 per article, depending on technical depth and complexity.

Earlier this month we released our latest eBook on Kubernetes Application Patterns. If you're looking to optimize application performance on Kubernetes, take a look! Thanks for reading!

Kubernetes migration: 4 secrets to a smooth move

Migrating an existing application to a Kubernetes environment can deliver plenty of long-term benefits, but it’s not a decision to be made lightly. Like any significant technology investment, you should know what you’re getting into – and why – before diving in head-first. Read more.

How to Hack a Kubernetes Container, Then Detect and Prevent It

As we talked about before in this blog, containers are just vulnerable to be attacked as non-container workloads. Hackers can use many of their old tricks on new containers, such as application exploits, network attacks, or phishing scams. In this post and demo, I’ll show how to hack a Kubernetes container using the well-publicized Apache Struts vulnerability which was used in the Equifax data breach. Read more.

A Security Checklist for Cloud Native Kubernetes Environments

Kubernetes is climbing new heights day by day with faster adoption and more contributions from the community. One of the important aspects of Kubernetes which initially kept early adopters at bay, is security. Many doubted the security around containers and Kubernetes compared to VMs, and subsequently wrote containers off as a result. But slowly and steadily people are starting to believe that containers and Kubernetes are now as secure as physical and virtual machines. Read more.

Kubernetes deployments: 6 security best practices

If you’re moving to containers and Kubernetes from a more monolithic approach to software development and infrastructure, it’s probably not because you want your teams to move slower. You’re likely trying to deploy faster and more frequently than ever.

That might at first appear to create a conflict with security, especially in risk-averse organizations or anywhere that fear of failure is embedded in the culture. Read more.
