Managing Azure Kubernetes Service Encryption

English Advanced IT

With a growing adoption of containerized workloads and AKS as a target, Security topics are at the heart of the architecturing discussions. Specifically, securing data through the encryptions capabilities of one cloud platform can rapidly becomes a headache. In this session, we will start by a rapid state of the art of the available encryption options in the Azure platform. Then we will focus on the 2 parts that matters for managing encryption at rest in AKS: - Managing Encryption at rest for the control plane - Managing Encryption at rest for the worker plane At the end of the session, you will have a clearer and better grasp of the way you can manage encryption with Microsoft managed Kubernetes solution, and the potential impacts on the operations.
