Software Container Supply Chain Risk from a Developer's Perspective

Tuesday, September 21, 2021 - 6:00pm

Software Supply Chain risk has quickly become the topic of the day with the fallout from the Solar Winds hack among others being a prime example of the risks of malicious code being inserted upstream in the software supply chain. The question for hands-on practitioners is what does this mean from a practical, ground level, developer’s perspective? In this presentation, we delve deep into practical demonstrations of common container security issues and offer practical solutions. We will demonstrate container vulnerabilities, showcase examples of how they can be exploited through a variety of exploits, discuss the landscape of tools to identify them and offer practical grounded advice for improving basic container security.
