Don't miss April's LDNUG meetup with Robin Minto talking on security in Cloud Native, and Ian Cooper who'll be telling us more about Nginx. Check it out!
Cloud-native is an approach that fully exploits the advantages of the cloud - it's how you build and run your applications to allow easy scaling and continuous deployment.
You may have seen the Twelve-Factor App methodology for developing applications that embrace a cloud-native philosophy but with that, there's little or no guidance on security.
Security can't be an afterthought and cloud-native is no different. This talk looks at how to approach security for an app deployed to the cloud. Can you forget about infrastructure security? Where should you focus your attention? Is cloud-native more secure?
We'll consider the similarities and differences between traditional apps and cloud-native apps. We'll look at how you can avoid the most common security vulnerabilities that affect cloud apps and we'll look at approaches applicable to both Linux and Windows. You'll come away knowing how to be more secure in cloud-native.
With the move to .NET Core, IIS is no longer the default web server for ASP.NET deployments. Instead ASP.NET apps are self-hosted and by default run in Kestrel. Kestrel is fast, and like Node.JS is based off the libuv async I/O library. But it's also optimized to talk to Nginx, another web server. Why would you need two webservers? What is Nginx?
In this talk we will explain the mysteries of Nginx to you. We will focus particularly on its role as a reverse proxy in front of Kestrel, but also cover its use for load balancing. By the end you should understand what Nginx is, when to use it, and how. You will even learn how to pronounce Nginx.
