Security for Kubernetes (
Alex Handy, The New Stack

With all the excitement around containers and Kubernetes, it can be easy to forget that these systems still require the same types of help that older virtual machine and hardware-based systems needed. Chief among that list of needs is security. The New Stack sat down with Liz Rice, technology evangelist at Aqua Security, and Justin Cappos, associate professor of computer science and engineering at the New York University to discuss The Update Framework (TUF) and the evolving landscape of Kubernetes security.

Kubernetes StatefulSet In Action (
Michael Hausenblas, Red Hat
