Microservice architectures provide numerous benefits but also have significant security challenges. This session presents how Nike uses layers of security to protect consumers and business. We show how network topology, network security primitives, identity and access management, traffic routing, secure network traffic, secrets management, and host-level security (antivirus, intrusion prevention system, intrusion detection system, file integrity monitoring) all combine to create a multilayer, end-to-end security solution for our microservice-based premium consumer experiences. Technologies to be covered include Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, access control lists, security groups, IAM roles and profiles, AWS KMS, NAT gateways, ELB load balancers, and Cerberus (our cloud-native secrets management solution).
