D2iQ Kubernetes Security Auditor’s Guide

How to Achieve Solid Kubernetes Security on DKP

Surveys show that 87% of container images contain critical vulnerabilities. Research also shows that almost every respondent experienced a Kubernetes security issue in the last 12 months. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that ransomware will cost victims more than $265 billion yearly by 2031. Although keeping Kubernetes secured can be a daunting task, complexity can be reduced by employing the right platform and practices. This Auditor’s Guide explains how a DKP deployment can reduce complexity, bolster security, and prevent unauthorized access to your clusters.

This guide provides best practices for maximizing security on DKP.

Kubernetes Air-Gapped Security

Expert Guidance for Gaining the Full Spectrum of Air-Gapped Advantages

Although air-gapping can provide the strongest security, architectures and use cases vary. While air-gapping is prevalent in the government sector, it also can be applied in the private sector in nontraditional places. In designing DKP, D2iQ engineers have developed unique capabilities that make air-gapped deployment quick and easy. The expert air-gapping guidance provided here has been gained through the DKP engineering process and numerous government deployments.

Watch “Air Gapped Advantages in a Non-air gapped World” to see air-gapping in a new light.

Zero Trust Security

The Best Path to Achieving Zero Trust

Zero trust is the state-of-the-art security methodology that has replaced “trust but verify” to enable organizations to achieve greater levels of protection. Zero trust is being pursued by organizations in the private sector and has become mandatory for government agencies. This rich collection of zero trust resources will help you apply zero trust principles with greater ease and confidence.

This Zero Trust guide was voted “Best of 2022” for good reason.

Kubernetes Security in Government

Achieving Military-Grade Security for Government Modernization

Government security requirements for Kubernetes deployments are stringent. The U.S. government has mandated that zero trust security be implemented by 2024. The resources provided here include expert tips for achieving successful zero trust, air-gapped, and military-grade security. Many government agencies and system integrators have adopted a DKP solution that is optimized for government deployment.

Kubernetes Security, DevSecOps, and Platform Engineering

How to Give DevOps Teams a “Golden Path” to Agile Production

Because of the newness and complexity of Kubernetes and cloud-native applications, organizations are struggling to leverage DevOps practices. The resources in this Security Hub explain how platform engineering eases the burden of DevOps by providing an Internal Development Platform (IDP) that can simplify the practice of DevSecOps.

D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP) Security

How DKP’s Built-in Security Protects While Reducing the Complexity of Kubernetes Security Management

The D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP) is engineered with security in mind. Each component is tested, certified, and rigorously scanned for vulnerabilities before release. By providing a fully automated and integrated Kubernetes stack that is secure by default, DKP eases the burden of DevSecOps. DKP also can be configured to meet defined security standards such as NSA/CISA guidelines. D2iQ is a CNCF embargo partner and can respond rapidly to Day 0 security exploits through software patches.
