This 2-days long training introduces concepts, procedures, and best practices to harden Kubernetes based systems and container-based applications against security threats. It deals with 6 main areas of cloud-native security: Kubernetes cluster setup, Kubernetes cluster hardening, hardening the underlying operating system and networks, minimizing microservices vulnerabilities, supply chain security as well as monitoring, logging, and runtime security.
This course does not only prepare delegates for the daily security administration of Kubernetes-based systems but also for the official Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS) exam of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), available from mid November 2020.
