Using Containers to Fight Malware at Scale - Dan Lambright, Red Hat

Malware attacks come in many shape and sizes, and ransomware in particular is a growing problem. To combat such threats, email attachments and packet payloads may be pre-analyzed using static and dynamic techniques within a quarantined "safe" environment. This gives an estimate of the danger the file poses. In this talk , we will explore how Containers coupled with Red Hat's "Atomic" platform can provide such a safe environment. We will show how Kubernetes can orchestrate the analysis of many attacks at scale. Within a Cloud environment, Traffic can be intercepted and validated from many instances and the results posted to the user. The talk will explore the solution's benefits and fundamental limitations, and conclude with a demo.
