Security for cloud-native deployments can certainly vary, depending on the organization, as well as different project groups.
Serving as a guidepost, Working Group: Secure Access for Everyone (SAFE) was created to facilitate ”collaboration to discover and produce resources which enable secure access, policy control and safety for operators, administrators, developers and end-users across the cloud native ecosystem,” according to the GitHub description. In that way, SAFE’s founders have envisioned a set of tools for cloud native operators, administrators and developers, consisting of a system security architecture, a common vocabulary and libraries.
SAFE’s potential and what cloud native security involves in general were discussed during a podcast Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief of The New Stack, recently hosted at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Seattle.
The guests included: Ignasi Barrera, founding engineer, Tetrate; Liz Rice, technology evangelist, Aqua Security; and Sarah Allen, technical lead and manager, Google Cloud and SAFE WG chair.
