cloud-native, cybersecurity, kubernetes, microservices, software, tech
Alex Delgado, a security engineer at the Gremlin chaos testing service, points to the disconnect many enterprises have. It’s not that the developers aren’t building with the newest technologies like Kubernetes and microservices. It’s just that security and compliance haven’t even heard of these things. And it's increasing risk.
“You can’t secure something that you don’t know how it works,” he said, on this episode of The New Stack Makers, where Delgado reflects on his past at a security and defense enterprise and his present at scale-up Gremlin. He began his career in customer support and then remediation of customer concerns. That put him in an interesting but often frustrating position as he moved into security, which had him throwing code over the wall that was released maybe three months down the line.

k8s, kelsey hightower, kubernetes, serverless
Serverless adoption is exploding — but what the platform is and how it might be able to help your organization depends on a lot of factors.
“Breaking down the word ‘serverless,’ for a lot of people, means almost whatever you want it to mean these days,” Kelsey Hightower, a developer advocate at Google, said during a podcast hosted by Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief, of The New Stack at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2018. “But I think there is this movement around so many managed services at this point and all of the problems you can solve…that you can now give it a term, a buzzword. So, that means that database now is fully managed and the security part is fully managed over the counter.”

The Berkeley Packet Filter is ancient history. It was created in 1992 at Lawrence Berkeley Labs as a way better filter and sort network packets. In the early 2000's it was at the heart of the long running SCO versus Linux lawsuit. Today, it's just another raw interface included with Linux. Recently, however, BPF has become a bit of an interesting topic, as it's become a popular replacement for IPTables.
Thomas Graf, CTO and co-founder at Covalent. is also the leader of the Cilium Project. Cilium offers API-aware networking and security for Kubernetes users based on BPF. Graf said that the power of BPF can be tough to utilize in Kubernetes, and so the Cilium Project is aimed at making that easier.

containerization, containers, developers, devops, k8s, kubernetes, programming, rancher labs
Shannon Williams has played a very hands-on role in launching software for over 20 years. Recently, after observing the power and potential of containerization, Williams co-founded Rancher Labs in 2014, after successfully creating Cloud.com (now owned by Citrix Systems).
Since 2014, things have changed. Kubernetes, of course, has emerged as the standard containerization platform, prompting Rancher to go “all Kubernetes” with its recent production release of Rancher’s namesake product Rancher 2.0.

At KubeCon in Copenhagen in May, many talks focused on the work required to build continuous integration and continuous deployment pipelines using containers. One of the major issue still remaining in the container world is specifically that last bit of the CI/CD pipeline: building, storing, and securing containers built for internal software projects.
Steve Speicher, principal product manager on the Red Hat OpenShift Team, spent a good deal of time at KubeCon looking into the solutions and remaining pain points that exist around dynamically building and managing containers within a more traditional agile development environment. "A lot of people want to leverage Kubernetes for the build in the pipeline itself, and so that's one of the things we're talking about here and learning more about what people are interested in to leverage the platform to do more CI/CD," said Speicher.

With all the excitement around containers and Kubernetes, it can be easy to forget that these systems still require the same types of help that older virtual machine and hardware-based systems needed. Chief among that list of needs is security. We sat down at KubeCon in Copenhagen to discuss this very topic with Liz Rice, Technology Evangelist at Aqua Security, Justin Cappos, Associate Professor Computer Science and Engineering at the NYU - Tandon School of Engineering.
Episode 304: Red Hat's Michael Hausenblas Discusses The State Of Functions As A Service On Kubernetes

Michael Hausenblas, Red Hat developer advocate for OpenShift, still prefers the term Functions as a Service. In the push to expand the serverless capabilities of Kubernetes, Hausenblas, at KubCon in May, told us that one of the key desires for enterprises is to be able to host Amazon Lambda-like functionality internally as well as in public clouds. He expects as more users adopt serverless functions, that developers will increasingly become comfortable with function accessibility via APIs.

Artificial intelligence may be at the peak of its hype cycle for modern businesses, but for the IT administrator it is still a headache, requiring software and processes that may entirely outside the normal sphere of operations. But help is on the way. At Kubecon + CloudNativeCon 2018 last month, David Aronchick introduced the first working version (0.1) of Kubeflow, software that packages the most popular AI and machine learning software so it can be easily run on the Kubernetes container orchestration engine.
