Securing Kafka, Istio-style, with Higher than Native mTLS Performance in Microservice Environments
We present a new approach to protect Kafka in multi-tenant, dynamic microservice environments that leverages transparent sidecars to provide superior security, high mTLS performance, and simplified operations, nicely complementing Kafka native security features.
Notes from Container World 2017 in Santa Clara, CA
Banyan was a sponsor and participant at Container World 2017 held from 21-23 Feb 2017 in Santa Clara, CA. Here's a summary of our panel session on security for containers and microservices, as well as brief notes on a few other interesting presentations.
The case for novelty: securing the dynamic attack surface of cloud-native applications and microservices
As enterprises adopt agile cloud-native and microservice architectures, security teams are being challenged to continuously protect a dynamic sprawling attack surface. This new challenge also gives us the exciting opportunity to innovate and re-think security processes and technologies.
Over 30% of Official Images in Docker Hub Contain High Priority Security Vulnerabilities
We performed a detailed study on images in Docker Hub to understand how vulnerable they are to security threats. Surprisingly, we found that more than 30% of images from Official repos are highly susceptible to a variety of security attacks (e.g., Shellshock, Heartbleed, Poodle, etc.).
Let's get things kicked off.
