Host intrusion detection (HID) has been around for some time. In this talk, we’ll present Falco - an open source project for runtime security - and discuss how it provides application and container runtime security.
We will show how Falco taps Linux system calls to provide low level insight into application behavior, and how to write Falco rules to detect abnormal behavior. We’ll show how to collect and aggregate activity in a Cloud Native environment using and EFK stack (Elasticsearch, Fluentd, Kibana). Finally we'll show how Falco can trigger notifications to stop abnormal behavior, notify humans, and isolate the compromised application for forensics.
