New Pluralsight Course – Securing Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Clusters

My new course “Securing Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Clusters”, co-authored with my good friend and colleague Ben E. Weissman, is now available on Pluralsight here! If you want to learn about the course, check out the trailer here, or if you’re going to dive right in, check it out here!

This course completes the learning path, Managing and Orchestrating Containers with Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), that Ben and I built together.

Azure Kubernetes Service is a platform-as-a-service that provides Kubernetes Services in the Azure Cloud. This course will teach you to design, configure, and manage cluster security in Azure Kubernetes Service. Focusing on API Server access, authentication, authorization, and network policies.

This course targets IT professionals with existing knowledge of Kubernetes who design and maintain Kubernetes Clusters. This course addresses both administrators and architects that want to learn how to deploy applications using Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS)

Let’s take your Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) cluster security administration and configuration skills to the next level and get you started!

The modules of the course are:

  • Securing Access to the API Server - We’ll start with learning the fundamentals needed for designing and configuring security in AKS, focusing on AKS security models and learning how to secure your cluster API Server at the network level.

  • Securing Access to the Cluster with Authentication and Authorization - you’ll learn how to use Azure Active Directory for authentication and role-based access controls to help control who can do what inside your cluster

  • Securing and Maintaining Worker Nodes - Next, you’ll learn how patches and updates work in AKS.

  • Securing Network Traffic - And then finally, you will learn how to secure network traffic using Kubernetes Network Policies
