Basics of Securing Your Kubernetes Cluster

When it comes to cloud-native technologies, a lot of people fall into the trap of overlooking security. They mistakenly think that, since their application is hosted on somebody else’s datacenter, that somebody shall take all the required precautions to protect their business against digital attacks. While this assumption holds some truth, we have to make an important distinction between what lies on you (the client) and what is handled by the cloud provider in terms of security. For example, let’s assume that you host your application on a number of EC2 instances on AWS (Amazon Web Service).

Kubernetes gets a bug bounty program

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) today announced its first bug bounty program for Kubernetes, the ubiquitous container orchestration system originally built by Google. To run this program, the CNCF is partnering with Google  and HackerOne and bounties will range from $100 to $10,000.

Kubernetes  already has a Product Security Committee that includes engineers from Google’s own Kubernetes security team, and there are obviously plenty of eyes on the code. A bounty program, however, will get more (and new) security researchers to examine the code and help reward those who are already doing this work.

netes use in production rose by 120% in the last year.

Why securing Kubernetes and containers can’t come ‘after the app’

Where would hybrid information technology be today without containers? The virtualized method for running distributed applications zips workloads from on-premises to cloud and back. Kubernetes — the open-source platform for orchestrating containers — helped solve the challenge of running them at scale.
