Secure Implementation of Docker and Kubernetes v3.0

Course Description

The cloud as we know it is changing. Containers have taken center stage as the preferred method of developing and deploying software into production. As security practitioners, we must adapt to the latest technologies or be left in the dust. This course will focus on building a modern cloud infrastructure capable of taking containers from a developer’s laptop to production in a secure manner.

Learning Objectives

  • Grasp the core concepts surrounding the Docker and Kubernetes ecosystems and implement security controls in each of these technologies
  • Understand the need for containers and container orchestration tools
  • Implement security hardening techniques in Docker and Kubernetes
  • Build security checkpoints within the SDLC and DevOps pipelines
  • Understand the importance of containers when moving toward DevOps
