This lab teaches you how to migrate a stateless application from running on a VM to running on Kubernetes Engine (GKE). You will learn about the lifecycle of an application transitioning from a typical VM/OS-based deployment to three different containerized cloud infrastructure platforms.
In this lab you learn how to improve the security of your Kubernetes Engine by applying fine-grained restrictions to limit intra-cluster network communication.
After provisioning two service accounts to represent user personas and three namespaces for dev, test, and prod, you will test the access controls of the personals in each namespace.
This lab deploys a Kubernetes Engine Cluster with the Binary Authorization feature enabled; you'll learn how to whitelist approved container registries and the process of creating and running a signed container.
In this lab you will learn how Kubernetes Engine security features can be used to grant varying levels of privilege to applications based on their particular requirements
This lab demonstrates some of the security concerns of a default GKE cluster configuration and the corresponding hardening measures to prevent multiple paths of pod escape and cluster privilege escalation
