Security BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by cyber security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.

Understanding and Securing Containerized Environments: A Peek Under the Lid
Manny Landron, VP of Security Consulting & Advisory Services
Oct 15th @ 10:45AM
Abstract: Security teams face unfamiliar challenges as more organizations transition to and adopt containerized AWS workloads including microservices. This session will explain the fundamental differences between containerization and virtualization, the pros and cons of containerization from a security perspective, and the challenges associated with securing and monitoring containers throughout their lifecycle from container registry to production. Additionally, we’ll explore the concept of ‘container escape’, review the role kernel namespaces and control groups play to enforce segmentation and control resource allocation respectively. Last, we’ll rely on the Linux command ‘strace’, a useful diagnostic, instructional, and debugging tool to intercept and record system calls as a technique to understand a container’s runtime behavior and the importance of implementing safeguards, including least privilege access, to promote container isolation.
