Tetrate and Federal Agency NIST Cohost ZTA and DevSecOps Conference 2022 Kicking Off With Istio and Envoy Training

Share

Tetrate, the leading company providing a zero-trust application connectivity platform, announced their third annual conference on Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) and DevSecOps for Cloud Native Applications in partnership with the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the federal organization responsible for creating security standards. The NIST–Tetrate multi-cloud conference is a premier event for CISOs, platform architects, and tech leadership from federal and corporate organizations.

The virtual conference will take place on January 27 from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST and will be preceded by a 2.5-hour training on January 26, showcasing the implementation of Zero Trust Architecture on an actual Platform One deployment. This year’s conference will focus on DevSecOps and ZTA as foundational approaches to developing, deploying, and operating high assurance, cloud native applications. Featured speakers include: André Mendes, Department of Commerce CIO; Kelsey Hightower, Principal Engineer Google Cloud; Ronald Ross, NIST Fellow; and Zack Butcher, Tetrate Founding Engineer. The conference has seen tremendous growth in attendance over the past three years. Past speakers have included Nicolas Chalain, the U.S. Air Force’s first Chief Software Officer, and Zulfikar Ramzan, CTO of RSA Security.

“Cybersecurity incidents are one of the biggest issues facing organizations today, especially as the world moves towards cloud-native applications,” said David Ferraiolo of NIST. “Developing, deploying, and operating zero-trust enabled applications to achieve security, reliability, and resiliency is extremely important for organizations to feel secure.”

“Over the last three years, the NIST–Tetrate conference has featured dialogues and workshops from the world’s most esteemed service mesh and cybersecurity experts," said Varun Talwar, co-founder of Tetrate. "The growth in popularity of the conference is a testament to the importance of ZTA and DevSecOps in a multi-cloud environment. This year, again, we're thrilled to gather together and offer our global community valuable insights and perspectives from top visionaries."

Cloud-native applications often consist of microservices deployed across a combination of public cloud, private cloud, and on-prem, also known as heterogeneous infrastructure. This has created challenges related to connectivity, security, and reliability for delivering high-assurance applications, leading to the popularity of DevSecOps and ZTA. Service mesh plays a critical role in incorporating zero-trust design and DevSecOps principles by adding security and reliability to connect microservices across infrastructures without any additional code.

The conference will feature presentations by domain experts, practitioners, and thought leaders in DevSecOps and Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) deployments, as well as demonstrations of proof-of-concept use cases in multi-cloud environments. Presentations will address the following:

  • ZTA guiding principles and approaches for workflow, system design, and operations through DevSecOps pipelines, authentication and authorization frameworks, and continuous monitoring;
  • NIST’s latest guidance on DevSecOps and security engineering practices;
  • The role of automation in operational security;
  • The benefits of prescribed approaches, such as prevention of configuration drift and continuous authority to operate.

In addition to a lineup of notable speakers, the training on January 26 will help deliver an educational experience where attendees will learn new skills and cover the deployment of a zero-trust platform with the use of Istio, Kubernetes, and other tools to implement the following security components:

  • in-app and user-level security permissions,
  • encryption in transit,
  • enhanced identity and access controls, and
  • runtime observability.

Tetrate also provides free passes, on request, to application security professionals who need the $35 fee waived.
