We are at such a juncture in the application security space.The adoption of cloud and virtualization for deploying and developing applications creates a huge shift and makes traditional and existing security solutions ineffective and inapplicable in the modern cloud era.

How Kubernetes Vulnerability is About the Challenges of Securing Distributed Microservices – Part 2

This post is the final part of a two-part series on analyzing recently found CVE-2018-1002105. In the last post, I covered the overview of Kubernetes (K8s) vulnerability (CVE-2018-1002105). Using an example API request flow, I explained how the vulnerability may lead to privilege escalation or anonymous access to K8s cluster using an example request flow.
