21 May 2017 Coming To Terms With Container Security [63416]
Container Journal, May 8th 2017

Mike Vizard writes in Container Journal, "When it comes to emerging technologies of almost any kind, there's a natural amount of fear and loathing involving IT security. In almost every case, security is cited as the No. 1 barrier to adoption. Regardless of those concerns, the productivity gains enabled by that technology always trump security concerns. Containers and container security are no exception.

A recent survey of 1,105 security professionals published by Thales in collaboration with 451 Research makes that point A full 87 percent of respondents have plans to use containers in 2017 with 40 percent already in production..."

18 May 2017 Are VMs More Secure Than Containers? [63479]
Network World, May 18th 2017

"We often say, 'HTTPS is secure,' or 'HTTP is not secure.' But what we mean is that 'HTTPS is hard to snoop and makes man-in-the-middle attacks difficult' or 'my grandmother has no trouble snooping HTTP.'

Nevertheless, HTTPS has been hacked, and under some circumstances, HTTP is secure enough. Furthermore, if I discover an exploitable defect in a common implementation supporting HTTPS (think OpenSSL and Heartbleed), HTTPS can become a hacking gateway until the implementation is corrected.

HTTP and HTTPS are protocols defined in IETF RFCs 7230-7237 and 2828. HTTPS was designed as a secure HTTP, but saying HTTPS is secure and HTTP is not still hides important exceptions.

Virtual machines (VMs) and containers are less rigorously defined, and neither was intentionally designed to be more secure than the other. Therefore, the security issues are still murkier..."

16 May 2017 Microservices: The Latest Twist In Distributed Computing [63508]
ZDNet, May 16th 2017

"There's a new wave of technology -- especially microservices and containers -- which seeks to break down all the monoliths and silos that have sprung up across enterprise systems over the years. But is this really a new mode of computing, or simply, as they say, old wine in a new bottle?

This and other questions were explored at a panel, convened at the recent Voxxed Days Bristol conference, that looked at the issues and opportunities in today's IT environment..."

14 May 2017 Miami Next Gen IT: Flexibility AND Standardization with Automation Frameworks and DevOps [63219]
Thursday, May 18th, 2017: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Venture Cafe - Miami

Evolve your thinking - Flexibility AND Standardization with Automation Frameworks and DevOps with Michael Stahnke, Director of Engineering, Puppet - When the primary technologies you're building upon and deploying are changing at a breakneck pace, the primitives of understanding and managing those technologies need to evolve as well. This is why DevOps practices, and automation frameworks, that emphasize cycle time, iterations, and common abstraction have become so valuable. Whether you're deploying a war file to a J2EE application server, or thousands of containers to kubernetes, the actions you need to take are similar.

You have testing, deployment, infrastructure creation, management, compliance, security and event management. In this discussion, I'll cover keeping up with changing technologies by applying conceptual abstractions that map across generations of technology tooling. I'll also provide concrete examples of how using devops methodologies allows your organization to get more done, all backed by data.
