The large attack surface of Kubernetes’ default pod provisioning is susceptible to critical security vulnerabilities, some of which include malicious exploits and container breakouts. I believe one of the most effective workload runtime security measures to prevent such exploits is layer-by-layer process monitoring within the container.

It may sound like a daunting task that requires additional resources, but in reality, it is actually the opposite. In this article, I will walk you through how to use existing Linux kernel security features to implement layer-by-layer process monitoring and prevent threats.

Containerized workloads in Kubernetes are composed of numerous layers. An effective runtime security strategy takes each layer into consideration and monitors the process within each container, also known as process monitoring.
