ABOUT THIS PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION
This course will teach you how to secure container-based applications and Kubernetes systems during the development, implementation, and runtime phases. This online session is appropriate for someone with a CKA degree who is associated with or responsible for cloud security.
This course would greatly boost students’ ability to become qualified by preparing them for the Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS) Exam.
Obtaining a CKS certifies that a candidate has the necessary skills to secure container-based applications and Kubernetes systems during build, rollout, and runtime, and that they are eligible to perform these tasks in a professional environment.Skills obtained will significantly improve students’ ability to become qualified by preparing them for the Kubernetes Certified Administrator (CKA) Exam.
Access to a Linux server or Linux desktop/laptop is required for hands-on lab experiments. You’ll also need access to a public cloud service or VirtualBox installed on your desktop. This course’s lab experiments have been reviewed in a GCP setting.
You should be able to complete the lab activities using the free tier or credits offered by a cloud service such as GCP or AWS. However, if you use more credits than the cloud service originally allotted, you can be charged.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to handle security in fast-paced, multi-project environments. This course tackles cloud production protection issues and delves into the security container supply chain, covering subjects ranging from before a cluster is implemented to installation and continuing, as well as agile use, including where to find ongoing security and vulnerability information. The course includes hands-on labs for creating and protecting a Kubernetes cluster, as well as tracking and recording security incidents.
