Security is a hot topic in Cloud Foundry world, but most CF security conversations revolve around the platform itself – from updating Stemcells to blocking SSH access. What about securing the apps that run on top of CF?

This talk focuses on how you can use Cloud Foundry to build central controls that enforce application security practices on CF apps, resolve issues automatically, and make security controls easy and accessible to apps, allowing them to do the right thing. Investing in such security mechanisms can help prevent problems before they reach production, and continue saving your developers precious time. Guy will show how the right use of buildpacks, services and external APIs can help handle secret management and rotation, managing vulnerable libraries, encryption handling and more.
