- Secure your Kubernetes deployments with eBPF
The Security Profiles Operator in Kubernetes offers several ways to record seccomp profiles by running a test suite against the application. This article shows how to use the Operator to secure your applications and how the recorder that uses extended Berkeley Packet, eBPF (or just BPF) does the job.
- eBPF and WebAssembly: whose VM reigns supreme?
The two hottest lightweight code execution sandboxes / VMs in the cloud-native world today are eBPF and WebAssembly. They both run high-performance bytecode programs compiled from C, C++, and Rust.
