Live Sessions and Demos

What 2.7 Million Developers Have in Common: Kubernetes

During her live keynote presentation, Priyanka Sharma, general manager at CNCF, will share some interesting findings from research done by CNCF on the cloud-native ecosystem and will also discuss Kubernetes and cloud-native trends and best practices.

Live Hacking! Practical Security Examples for AWS EKS/Fargate Using Falco

In this live coding demonstration, Kris Nova will be talking about the nuances of running an EKS cluster on Fargate. She will explore how Falco is able to securely tap into the underlying infrastructure using kernel tracing components built around eBPF and ptrace(2) (CAP_SYS_PTRACE).

“The main takeaways of my talk are: Understanding the value in auditing system information from the system perspective for a given application, understanding the nuances of shipping a runtime security daemon with an application in a containerized environment and taking lessons learned from running Falco in Kubernetes and applying them to EKS and ECS with Fargate,” said Kris Nova. “Attendees can expect to learn more about runtime security and Falco, the CNCF runtime security project, as well as get real-world examples of using these in the AWS EKS and Fargate environments.”

Live Chat Session with AWS Container Experts

Get your questions ready. Adam Keller, Brent Langston and Mikhail Shapirov will be answering all your questions about Kubernetes on AWS on the spot through an interactive Q&A session.
