About this talk

The changing market landscape is requiring developers to adopt to modern application development patterns lending to greater automation requirements specifically in a native way. Development teams tend to adopt tools and services that fit them very well in their quest for complete automation for their continuous delivery model. Empowering developers to use the tools and services that they are comfortable using is almost mandatory in today’s application development world. How can security teams gain observability in the highly distributed system where the definition of perimeter is not easy to define? Gain an understanding of what Machine Identity Protection means to an organization where there is an ever growing ecosystem of application development and deployment stacks. Whether the organization uses cloud provider managed environment for containerized applications, or use various tools for managing Infrastructure as code, a standard API driven way of managing the lifecycle of TLS/SSL certificates, SSH keys, code signing certificates is needed within the continuous integration and delivery model. This session will uncover how security teams can provide the required set of services that development teams can consume in a self-service fashion.

There are two actors on a network: people and machines. People rely on usernames and passwords to identify themselves and gain access to machines, applications and devices. Machines use digital keys and certificates to authenticate for secure machine-to-machine communication. While organizations spend billions of dollars each year on identity and access management and protecting usernames and passwords, very little is spent on protecting machine identities, which is essential to securing critical systems and data.
