CNCF SIG-Security Intro - Sarah Allen, CNCF SIG-Security & Brandon Lum, IBM
“Cloud Native” is open source cloud computing for applications — a complete trusted toolkit for modern architectures (CNCF presentation). There are multiple proposed projects which address key parts of the problem of providing access controls and addressing safety concerns. Each of these adds value, yet for these technical solutions to be capable of working well together and manageable to operate they will need a minimal shared context of what defines a secure system architecture.

Securing the Software Supply Chain with in-toto - Santiago Torres-Arias & Justin Cappos, NYU
The cloud native ecosystem and tooling allows for rapid development and delivery of applications using various services in different configurations in highly-automated software supply chains. Unfortunately, this supply chain has become an attractive target for attacks. An attacker that compromises any of the steps of the supply chain, compromises a dependency or alters the product in transit, can affect all users at once and with devastating consequences.

In this talk, we will talk about the current integrations of in-toto in the cloud/container space. In addition, we will cover the existing in-toto toolchains and how they can be used in various scenarios, from supply CI systems like Jenkins, to providers such as GitLab, and beyond. We will showcase these in different real-world use cases with concrete examples inspire attendees on how to secure their supply chain.

SIG Cloud Provider Intro - Fabio Rapposelli, VMware & Nick Turner, Amazon
The long-term goal of SIG Cloud Provider is to promote a vendor-neutral ecosystem for our community. New vendors providing support for Kubernetes should feel equally empowered to do so as any of today’s existing cloud providers. More importantly, SIG Cloud Provider is focused on ensuring a consistent and high-quality user experience across providers. The SIG acts as a central group for developing the Kubernetes project in a way that ensures all providers share common privileges and responsibilities. This intro session will begin with an introduction to the SIG activities in representing the collective interests of all participating cloud providers in the Kubernetes ecosystem, and help guide participants in how to become involved with SIG and to transition from specific cloud SIGs to Cloud Provider Working Groups.

Intro to Cloud Native Buildpacks - Terence Lee, Heroku & Emily Casey, Pivotal
You're great at running containers but you shouldn't have to be great at building them. In this talk, you'll learn about Cloud Native Buildpacks, a higher-level abstraction for building apps compared to Dockerfiles. Buildpacks are a standardized tool for creating images in a secure, reproducible, and efficient manner. As an app developer, you don't need to know best practices around ordering commands for layer reuse. As an operator, you don't need to worry about exposing developers to the responsibilities that come with Dockerfile. Come learn how buildpacks meet developers at their source code, automate the delivery of both OS-level and application-level dependency upgrades, and help you efficiently handle day-2 app operations

You have a lot of complicated things to think about as a developer and Kubernetes admin. Your container runtime shouldn't be one of them. CRI-O is there to be your "no-worry" CRI option. Running distributed applications, even with kubernetes, is a challenging task, and ultimately a developer’s focus should be on providing value to their end-users. CRI-O is a container runtime designed to be secure and reliable and is developed exclusively for Kubernetes so that you can focus on what matters more. Join Mrunal Patel and Peter Hunt as they walk through the architecture and design of CRI-O and show you how to deploy and run with kubernetes, so you can choose it as your runtime, and promptly forget about it.

Mental Health in Tech - Dr. Jennifer Akullian, Growth Coaching Institute
According to research by Open Sourcing Mental Illness, 51% of individuals working in the tech community have been identified with a mental illness. This is disproportionate to the 20% prevalence in the general population. To compound the concern, many working in the tech community are at risk for burnout, a condition that often resembles mental illness. While lots of people in tech struggle with mental health, industry-specific research and advocacy in the community is disproportionately inadequate.

For organizations, awareness and advocacy around employee mental health is crucial, after all, happy employees are more productive and less likely to leave their job. For employees who are struggling, it is important they know that they are not alone and there is help. This talk is focused on reducing the stigma around mental illness and expanding education and awareness into how to help yourself and others in your community. Jennifer will provide mental health background as she reviews the research pertaining to the tech community. Industry-specific burnout will be discussed and strategies for improving one’s experience or helping a friend or colleague will be examined.

Intro: Harbor - Enterprise Cloud Native Artifact Registry - Steven Ren & Alex Xu, VMware
As container technology becomes widely adopted in the industry, how to manage containerized applications poses new challenges to platform engineers. One of the challenges is to securely and efficiently manage containerized application packages with either container image or Helm Chart format. Project Harbor is an open-source trusted cloud native registry project that stores, manages, signs, and scans content, thus resolving common image or Helm Chart management challenges. In this presentation, we will focus on the management of container images and Helm Charts through Harbor. We will review and provide solutions to the challenges faced by organizations, including RBAC (Role-Based Access Control), vulnerability scanning, large scale content distribution, content replication, content trust (notary), webhook, tag retention, and DevOps integrations, etc.. Real-world use cases will be discussed in the session. Of course, fantastic demos will be shown to let you easily understand the related use cases.

Service Discovery With Hybrid and Multi-Cloud: Introduction to CoreDNS - Yong Tang, MobileIron
CoreDNS is a flexible and extensible DNS server with a focus on service discovery. While best known for its ability to serve as the cluster DNS of Kubernetes, CoreDNS is also capable of service discovery in hybrid or multi-cloud environments. The flexibility and extensibility of CoreDNS comes from its unique plugin-based architecture. With plugins such as Route53, Azure, or Google Cloud DNS, CoreDNS exposes services from Kubernetes clusters and cloud service providers in similar fashion. In this Intro session, the focus is it to discuss service discovery in a hybrid environment. Several interesting Corefile configurations will be shared, which are very useful in production usage. The updates on the current state and the road map of CoreDNS, and how CoreDNS as a project could be extended for usages beyond DNS, will be discussed as well.

Intro to Kubernetes Sig-Architecture Subprojects - Davanum Srinivas, VMware & Jordan Liggitt, Google
SIG Architecture maintains and evolves the design principles of Kubernetes, and provides a consistent body of expertise necessary to ensure architectural consistency over time. The SIG takes care of evolution of Conformance definitions, API definitions/conventions, Deprecation Policy, Design principles, etc. To support these activities the SIG participants work on multiple subprojects.

They are as follows:

* Architecture and API governance - is largely oriented towards sub-project maintainers.
* Code organization - is oriented towards maintainers and distributions.
* Conformance - is oriented towards distributions and community/ISV ecosystems solutions.
* Production readiness - is oriented towards distributions, support organizations, and users.

In this talk, we will walk through what each of the subprojects does, how they work, how each of them benefit and influence work in the kubernetes community, and how you can get involved.

Intro: SIG Cluster Lifecycle - Timothy St. Clair, VMware
The Cluster Lifecycle SIG is the Special Interest Group that is responsible for building the user experience for deploying and upgrading Kubernetes clusters. Our mission is examining how we should change Kubernetes to make it easier to operate. Since the group's formation we have focused on creating kubeadm, a streamlined installer tool and building block to simplify the installation and upgrade experience, and building a Cluster API to provide an abstraction of machines across different deployment environments and a common control plane configuration. In this introduction session, we will present the SIG's mission statement, review recent accomplishments, and discuss our future plans, where you are very welcome to contribute to the discussion. We will also focus on how new contributors can get involved in helping shape the future of Kubernetes' cluster lifecycle management.

Intro to the CNCF SIG Storage - Quinton Hoole, Futurewei & Alex Chircop, StorageOS
The CNCF SIG Storage (https://github.com/cncf/sig-storage) collaborates to explore and understand how different storage technologies are used in cloud-native environments. Topics include block stores, file systems, object stores, key-value stores and databases, amongst others. Different architectural approaches (centralized, distributed, sharded etc) are compared in terms of key attributes like availability, scalability, performance, data consistency, durability, fault tolerance, ease of development and operational complexity.

In the intro, we'll provide an overview of the work currently underway and on the roadmap. You'll get the meet the people leading these efforts, and find out how best to get involved and contribute.

We'll present our work thus far, and host discussions around the findings of our recent end-user surveys covering how cloud native storage is approached in the real world, including some representative successes and failures. Our hope is that others can learn from, and expand upon those experiences.

Intro: vSphere Cloud Provider and CSI - Fabio Rapposelli, VMware
Kubernetes cloud providers and volume plugins used to be "in-tree" meaning that their source code is included in the main Kubernetes repo. They were compiled in, and shipped only in a Kubernetes release. The drawbacks of this monolithic approach were that Kubernetes was larger than needed, and feature + patch activity was locked to Kubernetes release schedules. Going forward, new features are exclusive to the new replacements: an out-of-tree vSphere cloud provider + a CSI storage plugin. Legacy implementations remain for the short term but are destined for deprecation.

Deploy Secure and Scalable Services Across Kubernetes Clusters with NATS - Derek Collison, Colin Sullivan, Waldemar Quevedo, & Jaime Piña, Synadia
Services and Streams are the cornerstones of any modern distributed architecture. Communications and observability of modern systems have become just as important as the deployment of the components themselves. In this talk maintainers of the NATS projectwill create a service using NATS as the communication technology. They will show how NATS allows a service application to utilize cutting edge security with the ability to scale up and down, across multiple Kubernetes clusters and cloud deployments. This will be completely observable, with no code changes from the demo code base to global deployment. NATS allows cutting edge modern systems to be built without the additional complexity of load balancers, proxies or sidecars. NATS allows radically easy yet secure deployments across multiple k8s clusters, in any cloud or on-premise environment.

SIG Auth Update and Deep Dive - Mo Khan, Red Hat; Mike Danese, Google; & Tim Allclair, Google
This session will cover the inner workings of SIG Auth and its sub projects. The SIG is looking to expand contributors and attending this session is a great way to get involved. An update of the SIG's activities in the last six months will be provided. Based on community feedback, three deep dive topics will be covered: 1. The future of pod security policies Various limitations and structural problems have prevented the PSP API from GA. Possible paths forward will be explored. 2. Open Policy Agent and Gatekeeper Gatekeeper is an early stage project that aims to support policy enforcement via a Kubernetes style, custom resource definition based API. 3. Bound service account tokens, audiences and the future of container identity Asserting identity of Kubernetes workloads to external components is an essential part of access control. Bound SA tokens make this task easier and more secure.
