Almost all modern network systems, including stateful firewalls, make use of connection tracking (“conntrack”) because it consumes less processing power per packet and simplifies operations. However, there are use cases where connection tracking has a negative impact, as we described in Linux Conntrack: Why it breaks down and avoiding the problem.

FortiGate firewalls are highly popular and extensively utilized for perimeter-based security in a wide range of applications, including monolithic applications developed and deployed using the traditional waterfall model. These firewalls establish a secure perimeter around applications, effectively managing inbound and outbound traffic for the organization. FortiGate relies on IP addresses for implementing “allow/deny” policies.

The adoption of cloud native applications has become a necessity for organizations to run their businesses efficiently. As per Gartner, more than 85% of organizations will embrace a cloud-first principle by 2025, which will rely on adopting cloud native applications for complete execution. The massive increase in adoption of cloud native applications has given rise to more security challenges such as container image vulnerabilities, configuration errors and a larger runtime attack surface.

Organizations can reduce security risks in containerized applications by actively managing vulnerabilities through scanning, automated image deployment, tracking runtime risk and deploying mitigating controls to reduce risk Kubernetes and containers have become de facto standards for cloud-native application development due to their ability to accelerate the pace of innovation and codify best practices for production deployments, but such acceleration can introduce risk if not operationalized properly.

Kubernetes documentation clearly defines what use cases you can achieve using Kubernetes network policies and what you can’t. You are probably familiar with the scope of network policies and how to use them to secure your workload from undesirable connections. Although it is possible to cover the basics with Kubernetes native network policies, there is a list of use cases that you cannot implement by just using these policies.

As more organizations embrace containerization and adopt Kubernetes, they reap the benefits of platform scalability, application portability, and optimized infrastructure utilization. However, with this shift comes a new set of security challenges related to enabling connectivity for applications in heterogeneous environments.

Learn how eBPF will bring a richer picture of what's going on in your cluster, without changing your applications. With eBPF we can safely collect information from deep within your applications, wherever they interact with the kernel. For example, collecting detailed socket statistics to root-cause network issues, or pinpointing the precise binary inside a container that made a particular request for your audit trail. This allows for insights into the behavior (and security) of the system that previously would have needed every process to be (manually) instrumented.

Attackers are continuously evolving their techniques to target Kubernetes. They are actively using Kubernetes and Docker functionality in addition to traditional attack surfaces to compromise, gain required privileges and add a backdoor entry to the clusters. A combination of Kubernetes security and observability tools is required to ensure the cloud infrastructure monitoring and lockdown and to enable DevSecOps teams with the right tools for the job.

Security as an afterthought is no longer an option and must be deeply embedded in the design and implementation of the products that will be running in the cloud. It is increasingly more critical for many security teams to be almost, if not equally, knowledgeable of the emerging and rapidly evolving technology. Join Manish Sampat from Tigera, as explores the topic in detail with Stan Lee from Paypal.

Compliance automation is a commonly overlooked area of Kubernetes observability. The question is: how do you automate compliance to a security framework that isn’t well understood by DevSecOps teams to begin with? This lack of understanding contributes to mismanaged compliance efforts and in a worst-case scenario, audit exposures and organizational risk. This talk will walk through an example of how to 1) map compliance controls to specific Kubernetes technical configuration 2) automate the assessment of those controls 3) visualize the assessment results. DevSecOps teams will better understand how to incorporate compliance automation alongside security automation.

"Companies of various sizes are building their applications on Kubernetes because it provides significant operational benefits like autoscaling, self-healing, extensibility, and declarative deployment style. However, the operational benefits are only a starting point down the path of building a secure and observable platform that enables the continuous delivery of application workloads. This session shows how to build a fully operational platform, leveraging platform-oriented building blocks to address network security and observability.

As more production workloads migrated to the cloud, the need for Intrusion Detection Systems(IDS) grew to meet compliance and security needs. With the number of workloads in each cluster, IDS needs to be efficient to not take up the shared resources. Techniques such as packet inspection and web application firewalls provide a solid defense against threats and by leveraging the cluster's network control pane, we are able to selectively choose vulnerable workloads and provide an easy way to trace back to the origin of the attack.

Using simplicity to deliver the performance, stability, and manageability for application connectivity at scale in cloud native platforms such as Kubernetes.

Kubernetes is being adopted by every major enterprise on the planet for deploying modern, containerized applications. However, containers are highly dynamic and break their existing security models. Tigera provides zero-trust network security and continuous compliance for Kubernetes platforms that enables enterprises to meet their security and compliance requirements.

Tigera’s technology is recognized and trusted as the de facto standard for Kubernetes network security. Our open source software, Tigera Calico, provides production-grade security, and our commercial offerings layer on advanced security capabilities, enterprise controls, and compliance reporting.

Kubernetes Requires a Modern Approach to Security and Compliance:

  • Zero-Trust Network Security: With 40% or more of all breaches originating from within the network, you must always have to assume that something has been compromised. Applications running on Kubernetes make heavy use of the network for service to service communication. However, most clusters have been left wide open and are vulnerable to attack. A zero trust approach is the most secure way to lock down your Kubernetes platform.
  • Continuous Compliance: Kubernetes is dynamic and constantly changing. Moments after a compliance audit is completed the environment will have changed again. A continuous compliance solution is the only way to prove that your security controls have been implemented properly now and historically.
  • Visibility and Traceability: Applications running on Kubernetes Platforms have constantly changing IP addresses and locations that makes it impossible to use traditional flow logs to debug issues and investigate anomalous activity. The only accurate approach is to use Kubernetes labels and workload identity in your netflow logs.
  • Multi-cloud and Legacy: Many applications running on Kubernetes will not be greenfield. Applications often need to communicate securely with other systems outside of the cluster, such as on-premises or cloud-based VMs, bare metal servers and databases. To achieve zero trust security for Kubernetes, your security policies must be capable of expanding beyond the cluster.
