OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary
In this briefing, Amir Sharif, CEO and Founder of Aporeto gave an excellent an overview of cloud-native security issues and best practices. He also gave an overview of the Aporeto approach and demonstrated their solution using applications deployed on OpenShift, explaining the benefits and implications of their security model.
Aporeto’s Cloud Native Security solution works through authentication, authorization, and encryption for all of a distributed application’s components. It generates a cryptographically-signed identity certificate for every application component orchestrated by OpenShift and allows interactions between those components if there is a policy that explicitly allows it. This whitelist security model is simple because it does away with the massive complexities of configuring the different segmentation schemes that would otherwise be required to achieve the same ends.
