This month we have two talks and dedicated time for moderated discussion:

Title: Our Systems are Still Too Flexible: Trustable Application Delivery and Execution - by Jeff Nickoloff from Topple

Lets walk through a typical application delivery pipeline and execution environments. Along the way we'll catalog all the that things we have to get right in order for the system to behave the way we want, and in doing so learn how they can be broken for nefarious purposes. We'll talk about confidentiality and integrity, and about the secrets and patterns we can employ to make sure things work the way we intend.

Title: What's a Cat Doing in my Cluster? - by Spike Curtis from

You've spun up Kubernetes in your DockerEE cluster, but what are all these new components? Where's Libnetwork? What is this cute Calico cat doing here? I just turned on this "network policy thing" and now nothing is talking - What is going on?

In about 15 minutes, I will explain Kubernetes networking basics, how it works in DockerEE, what network policy is and what you can use it for, a real-world use-case from the front lines of containerized network security, and even who that insufferably cute kitten is, and what it's doing in your cluster.
