workshopBullet-Proof Kubernetes Clusters: Learn by Hacking

Learn how to attack, exploit, and hack Kubernetes clusters and application workloads. In this workshop attendees are divided into teams, given a crash-course in Kubernetes cluster security, and then set loose on a series of vulnerable clusters in a competitive and collaborative capture the flag. Full methods, solutions, and vulnerabilities are revealed, along with actionable mitigation steps to enhance a cluster’s security and lock down common misconfigurations.
