What we're about

Kubernetes and Cloud Native New York is the official Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Meetup group dedicated to building a strong community around Kubernetes in New York City and the Capital Region. We host talks from anyone doing cool things with Kubernetes, including companies using K8S in production or vendors who are pushing the boundaries of what K8S can do.

Presentations are demo focused and not sales pitches. Speakers at our Meetups thus far have included Google, Red Hat, CoreOS, Datadog, New Relic, and Apprenda.

This group follows these three central ideas:

• We believe in open sponsorships, so anyone can cover the cost of food, space, and travel for speakers. To not price out smaller vendors, sponsorship prices are not set beyond the cost. Organizations donating speakers, food/drinks, or space will automatically count as sponsors for the event.

• We believe in democratized organization, so anyone in the Kubernetes community that wants to help organize can be a part of process.

• We believe that all Kubernetes Meetups should be democratic and those that do not allow others to take part in organizing and sponsoring are not in the spirit of open source.

To become an organizer, sponsor, or to speak at the event, please reach out to the event organizers.

Securing your services with authentication, authorization, and RBAC with gRPC

Talk: Securing your services with authentication, authorization, and RBAC with gRPC Speaker: Luis Pabon Talk Summary: gRPC makes it extremely simple to write complex, business-critical services, in a vast number of programming languages. Its simplicity and adaptability has made it simple for developers to adopt by easily generating code from structures and messages defined as protocol buffers. Writing a secure service based on gRPC, on the other hand, takes a little more effort. In this talk, we will be going through a model of how to secure a gRPC service using JWT based tokens to authenticate user access by relying on interceptors. We will also discuss models of how to provide role-based access control to authorize user access. Bio: Luis Pabón is the control plane architect at Portworx and also participates in the CNCF, Kubernetes, and CSI storage communities. Prior to joining Portworx in September of 2017, he worked at CoreOS, Red Hat Storage, NetApp Advanced Technology Group, and EMC on various storage products.
