We’ve grown accustomed to high profile “software failures”, ranging from the grounding of flights at major airlines to high-profile leaks of massive amounts of personal information. These incidents drive home the fact that while we must *rely* on technology, we cannot yet actually *trust* it.

But is this simply how it must be? Are we consigned to a world where reliable, secure software is only possible at companies like Google and Amazon--and even then, still not?

In this talk, we argue that the explosive rise of open source “cloud native” infrastructure software creates a powerful mechanism for democratizing security and reliability for Internet-facing applications. We describe projects such as Docker, Kubernetes, Linkerd, and Conduit dramatically lower the barriers to reliability and security, and how the open source nature of these projects makes these benefits accessible to everyone.
