Security in the FaaS lane

A presentation at Texas Scalability Summit in in Austin, TX, USA by Karthik Gaekwad

Security in FaaS isn’t what you’re used to. With enterprises quickly moving to serverless, there’s a need to address the topic of security.

Karthik Gaekwad shares what he’s learned in the application security sphere that still applies in the modern world of FaaS. Using lambhack, a sample vulnerable serverless application written in Go, Karthik explains how to think about security in the serverless world and details security strategies and pitfalls viewed through a serverless lens. You’ll leave with a solid understanding of how to approach security conversations about serverless applications in the enterprise.
