Kafka in event-driven microservice architectures

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.

The Poodle vulnerability

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.).
