Is that robot really what it says it is? Securing automation and solving the Secret Zero problem.
IT automation tools like Jenkins, Ansible and Kubernetes are doing the job of privileged system administrators. These robotic actors need access controls just like their human counterparts. Established best-practices such as zero trust, least privilege, authentication, authorization and auditing must apply equally. Secret Zero describes the challenge of providing the initial credentials needed to authenticate an automated process in order to authorize and audit its activity. This session will explore multiple authentication techniques and their ability to address the Secret Zero problem.
