Hardening Microservices Security: Building a Layered Defense Strategy

  • Webcast Aired Wednesday, 21 Sep 2016 1:00PM EDT (21 Sep 2016 17:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: David Hoelzer, Matthew Silverlock

Microservices architecture is forcing developers to not only rethink how they design and develop applications, but also common security assumptions and practices.

With the decomposition of traditional applications, each microservice instance represents a unique network endpoint, creating a distributed attack surface that is no longer limited to a few isolated servers or IP addresses.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • How microservices differ from SOA or monolithic architectures
  • Best practices for adopting and deploying secure microservices for production use
  • Avoiding continuous delivery of new vulnerabilities
  • Limiting attack vectors on a growing number of API endpoints
  • Protecting Internet-facing services from resource exhaustion
