Amazon Detective Supports Kubernetes Workloads On Amazon EKS
AWS launched Amazon Detective for Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) to help in security investigations.
The new feature helps users analyze, investigate, and identify the root cause of security findings or suspicious control plane activity on Amazon EKS clusters.
“With a single click setting and no agent requirement, it is much easier to start analyzing Amazon EKS specific activity,” Kurt Kufeld, vice president of AWS Platform on stage during his keynote at AWS re:Inforce. “It uses advanced correlation and graph-based analytics to investigate security findings from suspicious container images or container misconfigurations that may allow access to the underlying EC2 Nodes.”
AWS has expanded Amazon Detective to include new capabilities that expand security investigation coverage for Kubernetes workloads running on Amazon EKS.
After enabling the new feature, Amazon Detective automatically starts ingesting EKS audit logs to capture chronological API activity from users, applications and control plan in Amazon EKS for clusters, pods, container images, and Kubernetes subjects.
