LEARNING PATH: Kubernetes Security

Intro to Kubernetes Secrets

Managing sensitive data is simultaneously one of the most important and challenging aspects of application development. When it comes to containerized apps, secrets management is among the most prominent security risks. Introduction to Kubernetes Secrets will give you a comprehensive look at Kubernetes secrets management through their entire lifecycle: from configuring secrets, storing and accessing them, to rotating them and enforcing secrets policies.

This course begins with an introduction to Kubernetes secrets management. This ties into a key theme of the course: the top mistakes involving poor/weak secrets management. We’ll take the help of practical labs to integrate Vault on a Kubernetes cluster, as well as storing secrets securely on Kamus. You’ll also learn hands-on secrets management and rotation with AWS Secret Manager.

Our courses are designed to give you a practical insight into real-world challenges to development and actionable solutions to them. All our learning material is backed by years of security testing experience, knowledge, and original research across our entire team. When you’re done with this course, you’ll be able to implement everything you’ve learned to effectively manage secrets in a Kubernetes application.
