The advent of containerized software services – and the emergence of Kubernetes to deploy and manage them – have played crucial roles in modernizing applications. “It has also unleashed a host of new opportunities for malicious actors to exploit misconfigurations and vulnerabilities inside these microservices,” says Palo Alto Networks Senior Product Manager Paul Fox.

That’s why Paul says federal agencies should take a closer look at a new technical report, released by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), that provides detailed guidance on how to harden Kubernetes containers and avoid common misconfigurations.
