Instructor: Cory Sabol
Course Length: 2 Days, 8 Hours
Includes: Six months of complimentary access to the Antisyphon Cyber Range, certificate of participation, six months access to class recordings.
This course is designed to cover the core fundamentals of container and container orchestration security. We’ll explore container security concerns, configuration issues, and how to abuse them as an attacker. Then we’ll switch gears and explore the ways that we can prevent the attacks we just carried out. This will all be done in a hands-on lab driven manner. This class is focused primarily on Docker and Kubernetes but many of the core concepts can be applied to other container technologies.
- Provide an overview of core containerization fundamentals
- Cover the main security risks presented by containerization
- Explore ways to discover and exploit common Docker and Kubernetes security flaws
- Explore the ways in which Kubernetes workloads can be hardened and defended successfully
Who Should Take This Course
Anyone with an interest in container security as it applies to Docker and Kubernetes.
