Improve Security with Automated Image Scanning Through CI/CD
When it comes to securing an application deployed on Kubernetes, automation through a CI/CD pipeline is key. Using cloud-native security tools that hook right into Jenkins or your favorite CI/CD tool, enterprise security teams can set policies for developers who are building container images. The pipeline enforces those policies through automated vulnerability scanning of each image during the build process. Developers only deploy images that the security team is confident in because they’ve been scanned.

Modern development is experiencing a transformation driven by conflicting agendas. Why?
While Security’s traditional tenets would have a risk averse mandated security practice using tested methods, the monolith to micro-service movement has given a home to containerisation and service orchestration. These new technologies have abstracted critical components of the application infrastructure into the hands of the developers, concealing it from traditional security methods.
Add to mix the growing regulatory initiatives like GDPR and CCPA to provide added urgency and new unknowns to compliance directives.
Amidst the growing buzz for shift-left developer centric security methods, we will attempt to clarify a new paradigm harnessing emerging technologies. We’ll explore whether your role is DevOps or Security, or both, with a look towards merging a forward thinking DevSecOps culture.
This webinar identifies the common ground between security and DevOps, and offers guidance on the best way to build in security without impeding agility, which increases agility without bypassing security.
Serverless runtime security requires deep integration with functions’ code, validation of its input and outputs and control over processes execution. But adding all recommended security controls has an impact on functions’ performance and cost (invocation durations). Aqua helps you walk the line that creates an optimal balance between implemented security control and functions runtime performance in one unified security platform for containers and serverless.
In this webinar we’ll discuss:
•Serverless runtime risks, the different security controls and their impact on functions’ performance
•Balancing between function’s risks, security controls and functions’ performance and cost
•Detecting attempts to use functions as a doorway to gain access to other resources
•Eliminating remote-code-execution (RCE) in serverless functions
Liz Rice is delivering an encore presentation of her talk that was delivered during the 2019 KubeSec Barcelona conference.
For those of you familiar with KubeCon, KubeSec is a co-located KubeCon security event hosted by Aqua Security and partner technologies AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Red Hat. In fact, we’ll be hosting another one in November in San Diego – you can find this on the CNCF website under co-located events.
In her talk, Liz explores how permissions work in Kubernetes through Role Based Access Control. RBAC is very powerful, but it’s complex, so in order to explain it she’ll compare it with something more familiar - the read, write and execute permissions visible when listing files on Linux. From there she’ll review how RBAC uses different abstractions and look at some tools for exploring the RBAC configuration on your cluster.
Modern enterprises are constantly evolving their development practices by automating manual processes to deliver applications to market more quickly. This new “DevOps” model of application development enables organizations to more effectively serve their customers by bringing products to market faster, and in many cases, a more scalable way. When it comes to security, however, this method comes with an added layer of complexity.
In order to securely manage the velocity and scale of agile software delivery, DevOps teams must adopt a “security-first” mentality. This is done by shifting left and building security into their development pipeline.
In this webinar, we’ll show you how you can automate the development and deployment of applications in your DevOps pipeline by embedding comprehensive security testing and policy-driven controls early on, allowing you to:
•Build software quickly, using custom job orchestration
•See all of your builds, including failed builds and slow tests
•Identify vulnerabilities and malware in your images as you build your application
•Configure your “risk-appetite" to pass or fail images in build based on vulnerability severity
Serverless functions are a paradigm shift in the way that modern-day applications are designed and developed. The agility, the associated cost-saving, and the lack of need for an Ops team has led to swift adoption of serverless technology such as AWS Lambda.
Serverless also changes the way you protect your application, creating the need for a new solution that can address its unique framework. Aqua Security identified the security challenges of serverless architectures some time ago, and can help keep your applications compliant and secure with two unique offerings:
-Aqua’s Serverless Security provides visibility into potential security pitfalls, risk-mitigation recommendations, and policy-enforcement options. It gives users a real-time view of function behavior and flags anomalies based on a behavioral model.
-Aqua’s Advanced Runtime Protection leverages Lambda’s layer to provide comprehensive runtime protection to protect against remote code executions that leverage vulnerabilities in the function’s code, or usage of debug/cli tools like Bash and Shell with negligible impact on your function’s performance.
This webinar, presented in partnership with AWS, will explain how you can secure your serverless workloads on AWS Lambda.

A joint presentation by Aqua Security and CyberEdge
Based on findings published in CyberEdge’s 6th annual 2019 Cyberthreat Defense Report*, containers are highlighted as one of this year’s “weakest links” in IT security given the lowest overall security posture score.
Mostly this can be attributed to the challenges enterprises face as they transition their containerized applications from the Dev/Test environment into production. Containers require a new approach to security as the traditional security infrastructure is not applicable to cloud native and serverless deployments. Rather they must leverage the cloud-native principles of immutability, microservices and portability using machine-learned behavioral whitelisting, integrity controls and nano-segmentation.
We will discuss :
•Key findings from the 2019 Cyberthreat Defense Report
•The unique security challenges (and benefits) of containers
•What leading enterprises are doing to automate their container security
•What you should look for in a container security solution

With the accelerated pace at which enterprise development and deployment of cloud native microservices-based applications is growing, supporting cloud native applications requires a holistic approach to security and compliance, across the application lifecycle as well as up and down the stack.
This webinar helps security teams understand methods for managing and enforcing security policies, spanning both multi-cloud and on-premises environments across a blend of:
You’ll learn how the latest release of the Aqua Cloud Native Security platform protects applications across the technology spectrum as well as against undiscovered vulnerabilities by implementing tight compliance and whitelisting-based zero-trust security.
As the adoption of containers and serverless continues to expand to a greater number of enterprises, and to greater numbers of applications within enterprises, it’s not just about managing nodes anymore. Many organizations now run multiple applications, across disparate teams, running on-prem or on different clouds and orchestrators, resulting in a growing need for scalable security that’s easy-to-manage.

Presented by the authors of the bestselling O’Reilly Book “Kubernetes Security: Operating Kubernetes Clusters and Applications Safely”
Kubernetes is fundamentally a complex system with lots of different potential attack vectors aimed at data theft, currency mining and other threats. This talk provides an overview of the current state of security-related features in Kubernetes, and gives directional starting points on how to secure Kubernetes components and the applications that run on top of these Kubernetes components. For the topics explored, pointers on where to further investigate will be offered.
•Container image scanning and container security
•Security boundaries (pod, namespace, node, cluster)
•Securing the control plane and Kubernetes APIs
•Authentication and authorization, including new tools available
•Say no to root (and why)!
•Runtime considerations, secrets management and more!
All kidding aside, while recent research indicates significant risks in serverless apps, these risks can largely be mitigated using simple, automated steps in CI/CD pipelines, in both staging and production environments. Taking the right preventative measures can significantly reduce risk and thwart potential attacks.
In this webinar, we analyze the risks and attack vectors highlighted by OWASP and other research, categorizing them into 4 categories based on their severity/potential impact. We will show how Aqua’s serverless security solution addresses each category, demonstrating the following:
•Securing the serverless CI/CD pipeline
•Automated checks in staging environments that create least privilege roles/permissions model
•Profiling Functions’ behavior based data collected during runtime.
•Usage of AWS Lambda layers to identify/block malicious activity in serverless functions

The growing adoption of containers and the availability of scalable orchestration tools (e.g. Kubernetes) are creating opportunities to develop more agile, easy-to-update applications that combine stateful and stateless modes. The emerging architecture combines both modalities, that have very different security considerations and risk profiles.
While Cloud Foundry Application Runtime is well-suited to 12-factor application development, Cloud Foundry Container Runtime is better for flexible, rapidly-updated apps that can scale-out specific parts of the application in a very elastic way. However, from a security standpoint, CFCR presents challenges in the form of 3rd party open-source inflow, developer-driven code changes, and frequent updates. It also presents benefits in the form of immutability, better network segmentation, and lack of persistence on the host (the notion we sometimes refer to as “reverse uptime”).
This webinar describes how to approach these divergent needs and demonstrates some of the methods and tools that can be used to mitigate risk without slowing down development.
Kubernetes enables you to run containerized workloads at scale on a cluster of virtual machines, while AWS Fargate offers a flexible way to run containers without having to manage servers. What are the best ways to protect these workloads against attacks? In this demo-rich chalk talk, including a live exploit, we explore how techniques like image scanning and runtime protection tools can provide innovative ways to control and secure your containerized applications, even when there is no way to directly access the hosts that they are running on.

Containers and serverless adoption continues to expand, with the numbers of applications growing within enterprises. Many organizations now run multiple applications, across disparate teams, running on-prem or on different clouds, and requiring varying levels of security and compliance.
Attend this webinar to learn how to better manage complex, multi-application, multi-cloud and multi-team enterprise environments with easy to manage policies, intuitive runtime visibility and role-based access control (RBAC) at scale.
Tsvi Korren - Chief Solutions Architect at Aqua Security
The concept of “shift left” engages security earlier in the development cycle of cloud-native applications, accelerating development while reducing risk. However, migrating to cloud-native environments also necessitates the security team to “shift up”, focusing on the application layer to account for the shared-service model and “thin OS” environments that are prevalent in these environments.
Attend this webinar to learn why Shifting Up provides improved security and cost efficiency in cloud-native environments, including:

Google said it themselves, “We are on a mission to make containers accessible to everyone, especially the enterprise.” But enterprises also need enterprise-grade security.
Enter the Aqua Container Security Platform (CSP), the first consumption-based container runtime security solution available on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace.
Aqua CSP is deployed onto your GKE cluster with one click. Once deployed, you get full lifecycle security for your container and Kubernetes-based applications, from image scanning to runtime and network controls.
Attend this webinar and learn how to:
• Protect GKE workloads while paying only for running nodes, per hour, via your monthly GCP bill.
• Scan images in your pipeline and in the Google Container Registry, and ensure that only trusted images are deployed into production
• Apply least-privilege security policies to your runtime environment to automatically detect and prevent malicious activity and container-related attacks
• Segment services on your cluster with container-level firewalling
• Integrate with Google’s Cloud Security Command Center for streamlined visibility
Aqua’s open source tools arm Kubernetes administrators and developers with an easy way to identify weaknesses in their deployments so that they can address those issues before they are exploited by attackers.
During this webinar we’ll review how Aqua's open source tools offer preventive security for Kubernetes:
•Kube-Bench: checks a Kubernetes cluster against 100+ checks documented in the CIS Kubernetes Benchmark.
•Kube-Hunter: conducts penetration tests against Kubernetes clusters that hunt for exploitable vulnerabilities and misconfiguration - both from outside the cluster as well as inside it (running as a pod).
