(Workshop) Keeping your Kubernetes secured using kube-hunter, kube-bench and microscanner

Speaker: Amir Jerbi (Israel)


This is a hands-on workshop session that will show you how to apply opensource and free tools to apply good security hygiene with your Kubernetes cluster. During the workshop we will show some real attacks that can happen due to a miss-configured cluster and how the opensource tools can help us identify these issues and remediate them.

The following tools will be used during the session:

  • kube-hunter: A pen-testing tool for Kubernetes that simulates attacks on your cluster. It shows you what is the attack surface for your existing Kubernetes cluster.
  • kube-bench: A configuration assessment tool that shows you how to tweak your cluster settings based on the CIS best practices.
  • microscanner: A free image scanning utility that scans your Docker images for known security vulnerabilities.

Other Info:

Attendees should have access to a Kubernetes cluster (can be a mini-kube installed on their laptop). Network access to download opensource tools is also needed.
