Level Up Your Kubernetes Security Skills at Black Hat USA

Gain access to a broad spectrum of in-depth cybersecurity Briefings and Trainings.

With many approaches to honing your skills and broadening your knowledge, next month's virtual Black Hat USA events can help enhance your skills — there will be a broad spectrum of in-depth cybersecurity Briefings and Trainings.

If you're interested in efficiently leveling up your understanding of Kubernetes security, for example, attend Defending Containers Like a Ninja: A Walk Through the Advanced Security Features of Docker & Kubernetes. This 40-minute Briefing will give you expert advice on how to implement advanced security features to secure the Docker daemon and its core components in Swarm and Kubernetes-orchestrated environments. Plus, you'll learn various attacks that could be carried out if these advanced security measures aren't applied.

For more in-depth instruction, sign up for the Kubernetes Security Masterclass, a two-day Training at Black Hat USA that will familiarize you with the depths of Kubernetes security. You'll start by setting up and running your own Kubernetes clusters on a simulated "on-prem" environment.

This opportunity will confirm that you understand the intrinsic aspects of the cluster and underlying technology without blindly depending on managed cloud providers to secure them. Once you're set up, the Training will take you through in-depth instruction in attacking and defending Kubernetes clusters; you'll learn all about Kubernetes attacker playbooks, and walk away with some useful techniques, tips, and tools you can use to audit and defend your own Kubernetes clusters.

And at this year's virtual Black Hat USA Arsenal, you can catch live demos and chat with vendors knowledgeable about leading security products. To complement your focus on Kubernetes, stop by to learn more about tools like KubiScan. Created to search for risky pods that contain privileged service account tokens that can be used for privilege escalation, or even compromising a Kubernetes cluster, this tool can also show you all the risky roles, rolebindings, users, and privileged pods in the Kubernetes cluster.

Register now for this year's fully virtual Black Hat USA, still scheduled to take place August 1–6, and get more information about the event on the Black Hat website.

Enterprise Vulnerabilities
From DHS/US-CERT's National Vulnerability Database
CVE-2020-27605
PUBLISHED: 2020-10-21
BigBlueButton through 2.2.8 uses Ghostscript for processing of uploaded EPS documents, and consequently may be subject to attacks related to a "schwache Sandbox."
CVE-2020-27606
PUBLISHED: 2020-10-21
BigBlueButton before 2.2.8 (or earlier) does not set the secure flag for the session cookie in an https session, which makes it easier for remote attackers to capture this cookie by intercepting its transmission within an http session.
CVE-2020-27607
PUBLISHED: 2020-10-21
In BigBlueButton before 2.2.8 (or earlier), the client-side Mute button only signifies that the server should stop accepting audio data from the client. It does not directly configure the client to stop sending audio data to the server, and thus a modified server could store the audio data and/or tr...
CVE-2020-27608
PUBLISHED: 2020-10-21
In BigBlueButton before 2.2.8 (or earlier), uploaded presentations are sent to clients without a Content-Type header, which allows XSS, as demonstrated by a .png file extension for an HTML document.
CVE-2020-27609
PUBLISHED: 2020-10-21
BigBlueButton through 2.2.8 records a video meeting despite the deactivation of video recording in the user interface. This may result in data storage beyond what is authorized for a specific meeting topic or participant.
