Containerized deployments have a significant impact on security. Here, we explore the challenges and investigate how Istio's security mechanisms can be used to increase security.

Container-based deployments are on the rise. A container-based deployment model is mostly independent of an environment and provider. As a result, many organizations start using them to achieve a higher degree of flexibility. Unfortunately, a containerized world brings new threats and challenges into the world.

In this session, we will investigate some threats in containerized applications. The container system itself handles some of these challenges. Others need to be handled elsewhere. One way to address these is handling them in the application. Another is using additional isolation mechanisms. Concretely, we will investigate Istio. You will learn what Istio is and how it works. More importantly, we will explore how Istio can help us solve some of the security issues generically.

This session is intended for anyone deploying their applications in containers.
