Securing Microservices: Protect Sensitive Data in Transit and at Rest

Video Description

Microservice architectures offer a lot of advantages: making it easier to scale your application and team, use different technology, and ship features more quickly. However, they also create serious challenges, such as how to properly ensure that the systems you create are secure. If done well, microservice architectures can be significantly more secure than other types of software, but if approached in a naive fashion, you can end up with a less secure, more compromised system. This video provides the sophisticated knowledge you need to create secure architectures from the ground up. The course works best for participants who understand what microservices are and who have some experience working with distributed systems.

  • Discover the best framework to use when considering the security aspects of microservices
  • Learn how to handle authorization and authentication, transport security, and patch hygiene
  • Explore new technologies that help implement secure distributed systems in easier ways
