KubeCon + CloudNative Con North America 2020 Virtual just came to an end. Industry leaders, IT professionals, and technology enthusiasts all tuned in virtually to hear the latest updates and share experiences related to Kubernetes and other open source technologies. Over 200 sessions were held in the span of the 4-day virtual event - spanning topics from CI/CD, app development, Kubernetes governance, container monitoring, and much more.

For those of you who couldn't attend KubeCon or struggled to follow all the exciting developments in the cloud-native landscape, specifically around Open Policy Agent (OPA), this webinar is for you.

This webinar will include

  • A brief intro to policy-as-code and why it matters with shift-left security movement.
  • How to handle container vulnerabilities with OPA
  • How to use OPA's public Golang APIs to create a tailored OPA binary with specified extensions
  • Examples of how OPA was used to implement changing Kubernetes policy requirements unobtrusively to CI/CD pipelines and workflows
  • A brief explanation of Signed Bundle and how this reduces OPA's attack surface
  • How to design your architecture around Zero Trust to protect against specific attacks
  • A deep dive into how to streamline the validation of Rego Policies using unit, mock, and integration testing
  • How to leverage DevSecOps principles using OPA to secure Kubernetes clusters in every step of the software development lifecycle.
