Principles of Monitoring Microservices

Containers and Microservices have radically changed how you get visibility into your applications. As developers have started to leverage orchestration systems on top of containers, the game is changing yet again. What was a simple application on a host before is now a sophisticated, dynamically orchestrated, multi-container architecture. It’s amazing for development - but introduces a whole new set of challenges for monitoring and visibility.

In this talk we’ll lay out five key principles for monitoring microservices and the containers they are based on. These principles take into account the operational difference of containers and microservices when compared to traditional architectures.

This talk is for the operator that needs to help development teams understand how visibility of apps has changed, and help teams implement these ideas. You’ll walk away with a good understanding of the challenges of monitoring microservices and how you can set your team up for success.

    Securing containers: security cannot be missed. What are best practices for container security, including vulnerability management with image scanning and compliance, runtime defense and forensics.
    This is plenty to cover, so be prepared to rock containers hard!
  • Secure Kubernetes with GKE and Falco Recorded: Oct 10 2018 45 mins
    Michael Ducy (Sysdig) & Andy Tzou (Google Cloud)
    Platforms such as Kubernetes make it easy to provide development teams access to the infrastructure resources they need to run their applications in a Cloud Native and scalable fashion. But what happens after your initial platform deployment and how can you provide a secure platform for development teams?

    In this webinar we’ll cover how to get started using Google Cloud’s managed Kubernetes offering, Google Kubernetes Engine. We’ll deploy a GKE cluster then show how to secure it using Sysdig’s open source project for intrusion and abnormality detect, Falco. We’ll cover the common concerns around security on Cloud Native platforms, and show how Falco provides the additional layer of security for the container runtime environment. Finally, we’ll show how to integrate Falco with Google Cloud Security Console to provide a consolidated view of security across your entire Google Cloud infrastructure.

  • Best practices for Forensics and Incident Response in Containers Recorded: Aug 1 2018 23 mins
    Knox Anderson
    Almost 5 years, 48,000+ github stars, and tens of thousand of production deployments later we can safely say containers are a technology that is a here to stay. Theyre developer friendly, easy to operationalize, and allow organizations to provide stable and secure services to their customers.

    While there are clear best practices for what it takes to build and run containers, there isn't as much knowledge around the performing forensic analysis of incidents that occur inside your containers.

    In this webinar we'll cover:

    - How containers change incident response and forensics

    - Best practices around forensic data collection in container environments

    - Compare opensource and commercial forensics options

  • Open source Kubernetes run-time security with Falco Recorded: Jul 24 2018 20 mins
    Michael Ducy
    Effective security requires a layered approach. If one layer is comprised, the additional layers will (hopefully) stop an attacker from going further. Much of container security has focused on the image build process and providing providence for the artifacts in a container image, and restricting kernel level tunables in the container runtime (seccomp, SELinux, capabilities, etc). What if we can detect abnormal behavior in the application and the container runtime environment as well? In this talk, we’ll present Falco - an open source project for runtime security - and discuss how it provides application and container runtime security. We will show how Falco taps Linux system calls to provide low level insight into application behavior, and how to write Falco rules to detect abnormal behavior. Finally we will show how Falco can trigger notifications to stop abnormal behavior, notify humans, and isolate the compromised application for forensics. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the container security landscape, what problems runtime security solves, & how Falco can provide runtime security and incident response.
