Monday, March 30, 2020 - 10:00 to 13:00

This 3-hour workshop provides a foundation on how to ensure the security of container-based deployments of modern applications.

Attendees are invited to run sample container-scanning tools to identify vulnerabilities prior to deployment using CI/CD platform. Before the start of the hands-on session, an introduction to containers and how security issues lurk in default container deployments will be covered.

After scanning the images for vulnerabilities, attendees will work on reducing the privileges and minimising the threats associated with containers. This can be done by mediating the issues to make containers secure for deployment. Attendees will then go through a release workflow to deploy the scanned containers to its designated hosting environment.

This workshop is technical in nature and is applicable to any container-based application.
