Securing Microservices

The term ‘microservice’ was first coined at a Software Architects Workshop in Venice, May 2011. It is now being used to explain a common architectural style that has been witnessed for some time.

The key driving force behind microservices is the speed to production. One should be able to introduce a change to a service, test it and instantly deploy it in production. Microservices can be further challenging with the granularity of the services and the frequent interactions between them.

In this talk, Prabath will address multiple perspectives in securing microservices: Secure Development Lifecycle and test automation, DevOps security and application-level security.
