    So many different moving parts





    She’s working on speaking schedule for 2019


    How would I use these at home?

    Threat Model
        What R U protecting?

        Who R U protecting from?

        What R your Adversary’s capabilities?

        What R your capabilities?


    Defenders think in Lists

    Attackers think in Graphs


    What are some of the visible ports used in K8S?

        44134/tcp - Helmtiller, weave, calico

        10250/tcp - kubelet (kublet exploit)

            No authN, completely open

        10255/tcp - kublet port (read-only)

        4194/tcp - cAdvisor

        2379/tcp - etcd

            Etcd holds all the configs

            Config storage


    Engineering workflow:

        Ephemeral -  


    CVE for K8S subpath - https://kubernetes.io/blog/2018/04/04/fixing-subpath-volume-vulnerability/


    Final points:

        Advice securing K8S is standard security advice

        Use Defense in Depth, and least Privilege

        Be aware of your attack surface

        Keep your threat model in mind


    David Cybuck (questions from Slack channel)


    My questions are: 1. Talk telemetry?  What is the best first step for having my containers or kubernetes report information?  (my overlords want metrics dashboards which lead to useful metrics).


    1. How do you threat model your containers?  Has she ever or how would she begin to run a table-top exercise, a cross between a threat model and a disaster recovery walk through, for the container infrastructure?


    1. Mitre Att&ck framework, there is a spin off for mobile.  Do we need one for Kube, swarm, or DC/OS?
