Serverless rocks the security boat. Ad-hoc servers we don’t manage rids us of certain security concerns, while the proliferation of cheap micro services raises others. In this talk, we’ll experience these security concerns live. We’ll break into a vulnerable Serverless application and exploit multiple weaknesses, helping you better understand the mistakes you can make, their implications, and how you can avoid them.

When we started our - still ongoing - journey from monolith to microservices we had the idea of a straightforward transformation process in mind. But microservices are complex and the process is not straightforward at all - it's a path with failure and detours along the way.

In this talk I would like to share some lessons learned along our microservices journey from a startup perspective - and what we would do differently in...

Microservices are great, and they offer us lots of options for how we can build, scale and evolve our applications. On the face of it, they should also help us create much more secure applications - the ability to protect in depth is a key part of protecting systems, and microservices make this much easier. On the other hand, information that used to flow within single processes, now flows over our networks, giving us a real headache. How to we make sure our...
