    Wesley Reisz talks with Sam Newman about microservices. They explore the current state of the art with regards the architectural style and corresponding tooling and deployment platforms. They then discuss how microservices increase the surface area of where sensitive information can be read or manipulated, but also have the potential to create systems that are more secure. Why listen to this podcast: - Different organisations have different risk appetites for new technology, so what may be appropriate for one organisation may not be appropriate technology choices for another. - If you are deploying micro services then you need to know why you are doing it and what benefits you expect to get from deploying them. - Micro services are defined by their independently deployable units rather than their size. - Using a cryptographic token that is verifiable off line is a common pattern for passing authentication contexts around to different services. - Serverless architectures redeuce the need to monitor server patching but does not diminish the need for monitoring application runtime or library dependencies from security patching.
