Kubernetes-Focused Firms Made Big Targets in 2020

Source:-https://www.sdxcentral.com It was good to be a Kubernetes-focused start up in 2020, especially if you were looking to be acquired. And if that focus happened to be in the security space, well then forget about it. Sure, last year’s Kubernetes-focused merger and acquisition show might not have hit the highs of 2019, when IBM spent all the money ($34 billion) to get its hands on Red Hat – and make no mistake that that deal was heavily influenced by Red

A hot mesh? Istio team hopes so as it bets on user experience to lure devs with v 1.8

Source:-https://devclass.com The team behind service mesh Istio has released version 1.8 of its project. The last major update of the year showcases further advances of the Istio User Experience working group and improves on some security aspects. For example, the mesh has stopped reading certificates directly from Kubernetes and now sends them from Istiod to gateways instead. The approach supposedly makes the often publicly exposed gateways less of a risk factor while also upping performance. Version 1.8 also looks to

Using Machine Learning and Kubernetes Logs to Automate Security Threat Detection

Source:-https://containerjournal.com Kubernetes is quickly consolidating its place as the leading container orchestration platform for cloud-native applications, with adoption at 59% among enterprise IT professionals as of March. But while Kubernetes delivers agility, flexibility and scalability for DevOps teams, it also creates complexity that can be an enigma for SecOps teams—especially when something goes wrong. When it comes to detecting threats and tracking down breaches in Kubernetes, security teams’ key asset is the Kubernetes API server audit log. The audit log

Accelerating Kubernetes Development

Source:-https://containerjournal.com Building a tool for Kubernetes developers means solving a bunch of problems (e.g., multiple clusters, kubeconfigs, secrets, kubectl functionality, how to represent the hierarchy of abstractions inside a cluster, etc.) and creating a user experience that promotes speed. A good dashboard lets you select from among multiple clusters and: See the states of everything and work with whatever you’re permissioned to access (this translates into zero need for IT operators to centrally administer dashboard-specific permissions). Drill into abstractions—see what’s

StackRox Tool Prevents Kubernetes Misconfigurations

Source:-https://containerjournal.com StackRox today unveiled an open source static analysis tool dubbed Kubelinter that analyzes YAML files and Helm Charts to identify misconfigurations in Kubernetes deployments prior to deployment. Viswa Venugopal, staff software engineer at StackRox, says given the prevalence of misconfigured Kubernetes clusters it’s apparent there is a need for a security tool that IT teams can employ before a Kubernetes cluster is deployed. Written on the Go programming language, Kubelintr accomplishes that goal in a single binary file that
