No matter how fast you ship software, a good design is critical to security. Cloud native systems are no exception. Containerized microservices running on distributed management and orchestration platforms, bring new challenges to address as well as classic software problems that we’ve been dealing with for years. Secure software design patterns can be used to model security controls at different trust boundaries within your architecture, providing security in a repeatable and consumable way. Using patterns such as the Service Mesh or Ambassador pattern lets us focus on proper security control placement and lifting security outside of the core services we’ve traditionally bolted security onto later.

The goal of this presentation is to arm software developers and security architects with reference architecture guidance that can be used in any cloud native environment. The topics we’ll cover include multi-tenancy considerations, authentication, authorization, encryption, and more. We will focus on newer cloud native architecture patterns as well as some classic software design patterns that are still applicable. At the end of this presentation, you’ll have a greater understanding of cloud native security design at an architectural level and you’ll be eager to begin white-boarding your ideas.
