Microservices offer a lot of benefits for deploying large-scale applications, but implementing a secure architecture can be challenging. At the end of this presentation, you’ll understand what separates microservices from traditional monolithic applications and what it takes to secure them.

Microservices offer a lot of benefits for deploying large-scale applications, but implementing a secure architecture that scales over time can be challenging. Services are highly decoupled from each other as well as producers and consumers of data moving throughout the architecture. Data contracts between services are often blurry, and data sharing between microservices require careful consideration around access patterns and boundaries between related services. New services come, new services go. Some are deployed to containers, some to servers, and some are serverless. Your developers, data scientists, and infrastructure team are all empowered to move quickly and ship new services. Your job is to make sure all of the above happens in a secure and sane way. In this presentation, we will discuss the challenges with securing microservices and present solutions to make security a seamless and frictionless part of scaling your architecture. Using real-world examples of successes and failures while building a microservice architecture, we will discuss what translates well from monolithic design to microservices, and the bad habits you should leave behind. We will demonstrate how to build authentication into a microservice architecture and how to implement a granular authorization scheme that will work effectively as you introduce new services. At the end of this presentation, you’ll understand what separates microservices from traditional monolithic applications and understand the problem space from a secure architectural perspective.
