Google Kubernetes Engine - Security Best Practices by Usha

Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) provides many ways to help secure your workloads. Protecting workloads in GKE involves many layers of the stack, including the contents of your container image, the container runtime, the cluster network, and access to the cluster API server.

It’s best to take a layered approach to protecting your clusters and workloads. You can apply the
principle of least privilege to the level of access provided to your users and your application. In each layer, there may be different tradeoffs that must be made that allow the right level of flexibility and security for your organization to securely deploy and maintain their workloads. For example, some security settings may be too constraining for certain types of applications or use cases to function without significant refactoring. In this talk, we will cover an overview of each layer of your infrastructure, and also the best practices for configuring its security feature
