Practical mTLS: Security without the Headaches



Ying Li discusses in detail the implementation challenges of Swarm, how her team at Docker greatly reduced the overhead necessary to manage an infrastructure that makes use of TLS certificates, and how they've added features such as transparent root key rotation, that reduce the risk of key compromise, and significantly increase the usability of Public Key Infrastructure.


Ying Li is a security engineer at Docker, based in San Francisco, focused on building security features for projects and products. Prior to Docker, Ying worked on the autoscaling system at Rackspace.
