  • How to Harden Applications against IIoT Security Threats

    This article will explore two sides of the IIoT security equation: understanding how and why IIoT systems can become vulnerable to hacking attempts, and which solutions and strategies are available to harden them. It will provide also a set of best practices to address IoT security concerns.

  • A Reference Architecture for Fine-Grained Access Management on the Cloud

    In this article, we will define a new reference architecture for cloud-native companies that are looking for a simplified access management solution for their cloud resources, from SSH hosts, databases, data warehouses, to message pipelines and cloud storage endpoints.

  • AI No Silver Bullet for Cloud Security, But Here’s How It Can Help

    In this article, the author looks at the real role of artificial intelligence in cloud security – the hype, the reality, and how we can resolve the gap between them. He encourages the reader to focus on making cloud security platforms that allow humans to provide truly intelligent threat responses, rather than relying on the machines to do it for us.

  • How to Use Chaos Engineering to Break Things Productively

    Chaos can be a preventative for calamity. It's predicated on the idea of failure as the rule rather than the exception, and it led to the development of the first dedicated chaos engineering tools. This article explores chaos engineering, and how to apply it.

  • Increasing Security with a Service Mesh: Christian Posta Explores the Capabilities of Istio

    Istio attempts to solve some particularly difficult challenges when running applications in a cloud platform: application networking, reliability, and observability and (the focus of this article) security. With Istio, communication between services in the mesh is secure and encrypted by default. Istio can also help with "origin" or "end-user" JWT identity token verification.

  • Istio and the Future of Service Meshes

    A service mesh provides a transparent and language-independent way to flexibly and easily automate networking, security, and observation functions. This article examines the past, present and future of the Istio service mesh. The near-term goal is to launch Istio to 1.0, when the key features will all be in beta, including support for Hybrid environments.
