< BACK TO TOPICSWhat is the Identity of your Running Code? How Netflix Keeps Control of Identity and Stays Agile

Netflix’s early move to AWS cloud and our desire to achieve end-to-end security brought some challenges which lead to a system for providing identity to running code. In this talk I will present how we build identities for all services and jobs within the Netflix cloud and ultimately use them for end-to-end security and fine-grained Authorization. Keeping the identity system logically one abstraction level above data centers and cloud providers future-proofs migrations.
