Determined to defeat the 1337 hacker, and try to not get fired in the process, they set out to secure their Kubernetes environment. Learn with them as they use Vault to dynamically create application specific database credentials, reducing the attack surface on database access. And see how they use Consul to stop lateral movement through the environment, reducing the risk of other applications and services becoming a secondary target. Join them as they dig themselves out of yet another hole, finally reading the carefully prepared memo their boss sent on commonly-used passwords, and keep their bytes safe.
