Monitoring Kubernetes the Elastic way using Filebeat and Metricbeat

In my previous blog post, I demonstrated how to use Prometheus and Fluentd with the Elastic Stack to monitor Kubernetes. That’s a good option if you’re already using those open source-based monitoring tools in your organization. But, if you’re new to Kubernetes monitoring, or want to take full advantage of Elastic Observability, there is an easier and more comprehensive way. In this blog, we will explore how to monitor Kubernetes the Elastic way: using Filebeat and Metricbeat.

Quick Kubeflow Pipelines with KALE, ElasticSearch and Ceph

KALE allows you to annotate your Jupiter notebooks on Kubeflow and magically compile and run Kubeflow Pipelines. In this demo, Aymen Frikha from Canonical shows how to deploy and run Kubeflow alongside ElasticSearch and Ceph, and how to quickly run a pipeline directly from a Jupyter notebook, using KALE (Kubeflow Automated pipeLines Engine).

What is the MITRE ATT&CK Framework for Cloud? | 10 TTPs You should know of

In any case, by using the MITRE ATT&CK framework to model and implement your cloud IaaS security, you will have a head start on any compliance standard since it guides your cybersecurity and risk teams to follow the best security practices. As it does for all platforms and environments, MITRE came up with an IaaS Matrix to map the specific Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) that advanced threat actors could possibly use in their attacks on Cloud environments.
