The Solarwinds breach is an event that we won't truly understand for some time - if ever. Several discussions we've been having in the abstract for years have become very concrete. The systems we use to develop, build and deploy our code are essential production systems. Securing the software supply chain is one of the most underrated security aspects today. All software today is built with dependencies. However, a discussion of these dependencies - both explicit and transient - as links in the software supply "chain" couldn't be more accurate. And the truth is, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. In this talk, we'll examine the complexities and sophisticated tradecraft from various supply chain attacks. We'll also explore securing the cloud native supply chain with CNCF tools from Helm & Distribution to Cloud Custodian & Porter. More importantly, we'll delve into the simple, practical security measures that can help prevent such attacks.
