Session 1: "Bypassing Security Controls" by Philippe Bogaerts (Fortinet)
Adopting a DevSecOps approach will ensure security from the moment code is produced until deployed in production. Let’s discuss some pitfalls based on personal research as well as some solutions to ensure peace of mind.

Philippe brings more than 20+ years of experience in security. Being a pioneer in firewall, reverse proxy, and load-balancing, Philippe specialized in web application security with a focus on penetration testing and web application firewalling. Today, Philippe contributes mostly by writing blog posts, talking at meetups as well as co-organizing a renowned security conference. Philippe is a cloud solution engineer at Fortinet.

Session 2: "Constellation - The first always encrypted Kubernetes" by Moritz Eckert (Edgeless Systems)
Confidential computing allows one to keep workloads encrypted and isolated in memory during processing. Constellation is an open-source K8s distro/engine that applies the confidential-computing concept to entire K8s clusters. In this talk, Moritz will introduce confidential computing, discuss the motivation behind Constellation, give an overview of its architecture, and show a live demo.

Moritz Eckert is a passionate cybersecurity expert. He was a software security researcher at EURECOM and UC Santa Barbara. He joined Edgeless Systems in 2020, where he now leads product development. Moritz has presented at top-tier cybersecurity conferences, including Usenix Security Symposium and RSA Conference.

The event will be live-streamed, recorded, and made available later on VSHN's YouTube channel: – subscribe to be notified of updates!

We expect all participants to abide by VSHN's Conference Code of Conduct:
