Security lessons learned from building serverless systems

Jalem Raj Rohit (~Dawny33)




Serverless systems are systems where servers need not be running and being maintained round the clock. The paradigm uses functions and the concept of containerization to spawn on-demand light-weight containers for executing a task, and safely destroying the server when the task is completed.

As this is a new domain, the practices and concepts of ensuring security and doing the logging and monitoring, are still mostly difficult and not-fully-solved problems.

This talk stresses upon the security part of serverless systems explaining the lessons learned and pitfalls experienced from building distributed, serverless systems.

[Will be using AWS-specific examples whenever a tool-related point arises. But, that should fairly generalize to other cloud providers too.]

Hi can you please upload the slides for the talk so that your proposal can be reviewed.

Pradhvan Bisht (~cyber_freak)

Hi Pradhvan,

I tend to prepare my slides a month before the talk. So, I don't have them ready. However, here are the slides for my other serverless distributed systems talk which you can refer to, just in case you want to understand my speaking style.
