Modern applications have moved from enterprise data centers into multi-tenant cloud and edge environments. They operate in untrusted networks and increasingly rely on third-party managed services and infrastructure. This creates exponential growth in the vulnerability surface of our application data.
Data, within our applications, routinely flows over complex, multi-hop, multi-protocol routes — across network boundaries, beyond data centers, through queues and caches, via gateways and brokers — before reaching its end destination. The vulnerability surfaces of all these dependencies get added to the vulnerability surface of our application data and make it unmanageable.
To build applications that are secure-by-design and private-by-default, we have to bake end-to-end guarantees of data authenticity, integrity & privacy into our distributed applications.
This month we have Mrinal Wadhwa joining us (for our first in-person meetup!) to dive deep into this topic. This should be an incredibly interesting talk for anyone interested in application security, distributed systems, and anything in-between.
Mrinal is the CTO at Ockam, where they’re building many open source tools for developing safe and secure applications github.com/build-trust/ockam
Please join us to learn something interesting and hang out with your fellow developers and hackers. >:D
This event will be held in person at StepZen headquarters: 2880 Lakeside Drive, Suite 310, Santa Clara, CA 95054, USA.
